Authentication for using REST API

Question asked by ally311 on Apr 9, 2018

Hi,

 

I have access to an Alfresco installation that has SAML SSO set up on it, the documentation for which suggests I should be authenticating with the method:

/alfresco/service/saml/-default-/rest-api/authenticate

as found here: Authenticating users with SAML SSO for REST API | Alfresco Documentation 

 

Up until now, I have been authenticating with the method:

/alfresco/api/-default-/public/authentication/versions/1/tickets

as found here: Alfresco Content Services REST API Explorer 

 

Can anyone tell me if there are any differences in these approaches?

If so, which is better? - why?

 

Thanks
