Support for ODM Res Server Deployment using authorization Token for ODM plugin

Current IBM ODM UCD plugin uses Basic authentication mechanism (that is username and password) for the Res Server Deployment. Currently the Res server is being migrated to AWS instance and using OKTA for authentication. We would need enhancement to the current ODM Plugin version also to use authorization token for Res deployment authentication.

Below IBM documentation can be referred for more details which describes usage of “authorizationToken”

    Hello Dan,

    HCL is our development and IPP partner and actively developing UCD and it's plug-ins. There were some challenges, but together with the ODM IBM team we are working to deliver it as soon as possible.

    Based on your comments below, an upgrade is actively being worked on to support this issue. Can you confirm that there will be a new version released by plugin development? I know timelines are hard to lock down but we are receiving mixed messages about who is responsible for this fix (IBM, HCL, the community) and I want to make sure we know one is coming before we consider customization.

    Thank you with your patience as the change takes longer than expected. The plug-in development, IBM and customer teams are in regular contact with this high priority RFE.

    Now that our company is moving to OKTA authentication, this feature is critical to our use of ODM with OpenId connect. We use UCD to deploy our Rule snapshots and without an OKTA enabled IBM UCD deployment plug-in, we will need to look for an alternative solution. Please reach out to us and let us know as soon as possible if this can be implemented by you, or suggest another solution. I look forward to hearing back. Thank you!
