    string

    Description of Response Type

    The response is the security token as a base64 string. It is usually stored in a cookie.

    Notes

    The security token is a string that needs to be embedded in every API call to ensure the API calls are authorized. If saved as a cookie in a web browser, it can be used (for the authenticated user) to auto-login into the application. The assumption is that the user has already authenticated via OpenID before attempting to authenticate into Pyramid.
