Enable two-factor authentication

Two-factor authentication is an easy-to-use best practice that adds an additional layer of protection for your Apigee account.

For example, to sign in to the Edge UI when two-factor auth is enabled, you must supply your username and password and a 6-digit number. The number is randomly generated, changes every 30 seconds and can only be used only one time to sign in.

To enable two-factor authentication, see Enable two-factor auth for your Apigee account.

Access the Apigee Edge Management API

With basic authentication, you pass your credentials (your Apigee account's email address and password) or an OAuth2 token in each request to the management API. Refer to the following sections for more information:

After you enable SAML, users access the Edge management API using SAML, as described in Access the management API with SAML.
