Support » Plugin: WordPress REST API Authentication » How is it different then this?

  • Resolved jeremiva


    I use currently JWT Authentication for WP REST API that has over 20k Downloads and from what I see I can also use this Plugin, I like that it is updated more often, So my question is how different is this one then JWT Authentication for WP REST API ?

    Is it more stable?
    Can both be used together for testing without breaking something?
    Does this plugin also require me to modify .htaccess and config.php?

    Yes, our plugin is highly maintained and stays updated with new WP releases compatibility and security updates.

    Our plugin provided different API Authentication methods along with JWT Authentication like Basic Auth, API Key Authentication, OAuth 2.0 Authentication(Password grant, Client Credential) and authentication from 3rd party Identity Providers in case you have.

    Yes, our current plugin version is very stable and we haven’t heard any issue from our existing customers.

    Yes, you can use both the plugin at a time. But that won’t be needed as both plugins have same objective, so it may cause some conflict with each other. I would recommend you to go with only single plugin instead. We will make sure our plugin fulfill all your requirements.

    No, to use our plugin you do not have to make any changes outside the plugin. Everything is handled there in the plugin itself. No need to modify .htaccess or config.php.

    Hope I have answered your concerns. I would be happy to answers any other questions if you have.

    I swiched back to JWT Authentication for WP REST API, beceuse with your plugin I had Cors issues in my applications.

    Hi @jeremiva

    We currently do not support CORS for security reasons.
    Traditionally, CORS are supposed to be handled on the server level as opposed to application level.

    I would suggest you to use this plugin:

    With this plugin, you can specify the domains that you want to allow the access to the WordPress REST API.
    This will restrict the REST API to only a particular set of domains.
    This implies that no other domain can access your REST APIs.

    Team miniOrange

    wp-cors works with domains yes, but what if I have a Desktop Software like I have currently? I have no IP or Domain I can specify the users who use the Desktop Software need to login when opening it, so cors need to be handled automatically in this case. Or is there any better solution inside miniOrange you can sugguest me for using inside Desktop Software?

    Hi @jeremiva

    In case of desktop applications, the server must have a * for Access-Control-Allow-Origin header.

    We have noted your feedback and we will include provision for the same in the next plugin update.

    For now, you can configure a “*” value in the wp-cors plugin.

    We will keep you updated regarding the same.

    Team miniOrange

    Thank you can’t wait for the Update.

    Has WordPress REST API Authentication now wp-cors feature?

    Hi @jeremiva,

    Right now this option is supported in only premium version of our plugin.

    We can arrange a demo for the same if you are interested.
