Hi Hüseyin

i do not think that there is a out of the box solution to enforce authentication for the mentioned endpoints

The only REST resources that allow such kind of access are those that are meant for anonymous access.  These have to be explicitly marked with @AnonymousAllowed or they will automatically reject any anonymous request. In addition i think that some endpoints need to be accessible before any authentication might take place (not sure if that is the case for the ones you listed, but i could think of some scenarios= 


One option you could think of would be to block them explicitly on the load balancer (if in use) at least for access from the internet.


Looking at the first rest call, the information returned is related to the configured app links, which could also be extracted from the WebUI

Hi Kurt 

For first api call is as you said. But other api calls can be reached with authentication at WebGUI. so we need to reach with authentication.


Hi @Hüseyin Çam , sorry. How you resolved please ? Thanks a loto for the info. We have the same problem. Have you blocked directly on the load balancer ?
