Enum Class AuthSettings.AuthLevel

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<AuthSettings.AuthLevel>, Constable
Enclosing class:

public static enum AuthSettings.AuthLevel extends Enum<AuthSettings.AuthLevel>
Authentication level.

Used by Auth to specify what authentication is required, and by AuthResult to specify what authentication was found. These are a series of levels, from least to most authentication required. The lowest level of requirement, NONE, can be satisfied by any level of authentication, while the highest level, USER, can only be satisfied by the authentication of a specific user. The level returned may be higher than what was required, if more authentication turns out to be possible. For instance, if an authenticated user is found, USER will be returned even if no authentication was required.

  • Enum Constant Details

    • NONE

      public static final AuthSettings.AuthLevel NONE
      No authentication was required/found.
    • APP

      public static final AuthSettings.AuthLevel APP
      Authentication required, but user not required.

      In Auth: authentication is required, but App-internal authentication (which isn't associated with a specific user, but a service account) is permitted. Examples include requests from Cloud Tasks, Cloud Scheduler, and the proxy.

      In AuthResult: App-internal authentication (via service accounts) was successful.

    • USER

      public static final AuthSettings.AuthLevel USER
      Authentication required, user required.

      In Auth: Authentication is required, and app-internal authentication is forbidden, meaning that a valid authentication result will contain specific user information.

      In AuthResult: A valid user was authenticated.
