Data Types

Any type of Actions will need to define Data Types in order to transfer information from one system to another. The main data types used for RapidIdentity are defined as follows:

  • Boolean: A variable that can have only 2 possible values (usually denoted as true or false)

  • Enum: A set of distinct, named values

  • Number: A value with which you can perform arithmetic

  • OAuth: The credentials used with the OAuth authorization protocol. This allows administrators to approve one application to interact securely with another on their behalf without revealing those credentials

  • Object: A user-defined, composite data type that includes a data structure along with the functions and procedures needed to manipulate that data

  • Password: A secret string of characters that must be used to gain admission to something

  • String: A set of characters that can also contain spaces and numbers
