# Authorization

With Authorization, users can make authenticated/authorized HTTP requests.

The main idea is to,

  1. First configure the authorization which your REST API needs e.g. Basic Auth, OAuth, etc.
    • User can configure authorization by going to Configuration Tab > Authorizations section.
  1. Then use that authorization in test cases by simply associating the test case with the configured authorization in step 1.

vREST directly supports five types of authorization mechanisms. But you may write your own script to support any other custom authorization mechanism.

If you are using any other kind of authorization mechanism which is not directly supported by the vREST NG application then feel free to write to us at support@vrest.io.
