Description

Currently, the API only accepts two ways to authenticate users:
- HTTP Basic authentication (logins and passwords are sent with each request)
- API key

We could secure this process and make it easier to use.
Allowing JWT (JSON web token) authentication could be a great improvement.

Whoud you like to secure api calls?
Or You want to rewrite front panel working process too?

Hi Serguei,
I am just talking about API calls here. I could work on this feature, but I would like to know the opinion of core contributors first.
Thanks
