Credential Authentication - REST Protocol

Similar to asking for ticket-granting tickets, this endpoint allows one to only verify the validity of provided credentials as they are extracted from the request body:

POST /cas/v1/users HTTP/1.0


You may also specify a service parameter to verify whether the authenticated user may be allowed to access the given service. While the above example shows username and password as the provided credentials, you are practically allowed to provide multiple sets and different types of credentials provided CAS is equipped to extract and recognize those from the request body.

A successful response will produce a 200 OK status code along with a JSON representation of the authentication result, which may include the authentication object, authenticated principal along with any captured attributes and/or metadata fetched for the authenticated user.
