Web API Authentication RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I understand that WCF Rest API shouldn't be used for new projects, and the new Web API should be used instead. I have looked at this and understand how it works. Some of the methods I expose I need to authenticate a user against a SQL database before they are allowed to call. I could pass the credentials along with each request but that doesn't seem very eloquent. Is there a better way? Are there any guidelines for this?
