uddi_get_authToken — Obtain authentication token.




The uddi_get_authToken message is used to obtain an authentication token. Authentication tokens are opaque values that are required for all other publisher API calls. This message is not required for UDDI-enabled servers that have an external mechanism defined for users to get an authentication token. This API is provided for implementations that do not have some other method of obtaining an authentication token or certificate, or that choose to use password-based authentication.
