About CUPI Authentication and Authorization
CUPI uses the same authentication and authorization scheme that the administration console uses. This means that the objects an administrator has access to when authenticated are determined by the roles to which the administrator is assigned.
CUPI authenticates by using standard HTTPS and Basic authentication, so that credentials can be passed by using typical mechanisms to send username and password via HTTP headers.
Authentication Rules API
In Cisco Unity Connection, the authentication rules govern user passwords, PINs, and account lockouts for all user accounts. You use the authentication rules to secure how users access Unity Connection by phone, and how users access Cisco Unity Connection Administration and the Cisco Personal Communications Assistant (Cisco PCA).
