Authentication Overview - Manifold Docs

Manifold Marketplace-as-a-Service uses the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authorization. In our OAuth2 implementation, Manifold obtains limited access to your user accounts by delegating user authentication to your platform. It's important to understand that Manifold acts as a third-party application installed by your end users. Once your platform has authenticated an end user, Manifold trusts the end user and allows the user to access Manifold’s embedded marketplace.

Webhooks Overview - Manifold Docs

To enable your platform to quickly react to changes in Manifold’s embedded marketplace, Manifold provides a webhook system which publishes events for certain actions in the marketplace. When one of these events is triggered, Manifold sends an HTTP POST payload to a webhook URL that’s unique to your platform. Webhooks allow you to subscribe to events to help you build your integrations — for example, when one of your end users provisions a resource, you need to load the resource and its credentials into your platform.

Manifold - Ansible integration - Manifold Docs

Ansible is a server automation framework that allows you to provision an entire infrastructure, manage configuration, and deploy applications. Ansible 2.8 includes a built-in Manifold credential lookup plugin that enables you to access resource credentials managed by Manifold. Using Manifold for credential management means you don’t have to hard-code secrets and configuration variables in your Ansible environment config files.
