I have a Yii app running on Azure with an Azure SQL db. This all works beautifully.
Now to access the app, one has to first authenticate through Azure, and then authenticate through the Yii app login. Once again, this work just fine.
I’ve been asked if it would be possible to allow an external app to transfer (full crud permisssions) information to this Yii app through an API.
Correct me if I’m wrong, never looked into this before, is this where a REST API would come into play?
How does a REST API authenticate to have access (both Azure and Yii)?
Can anyone offer a brief overview of the direction I’d need to take/explore?
