Objecten API Plugin

The Objecten API plugin can be used to store and access data about an Object in an application that supports the Objecten API standard created and used by the Dutch government.

Configure the plugin

A plugin configuration is required before the plugin can be used. A general description on how to configure plugins can be found here.

If the Objecten API plugin is not visible in the plugin menu, it is possible the application is missing a dependency. Instructions on how to add the Objecten API dependency can be found here.

To configure this plugin the following properties have to be entered:

  • URL (url). Contains the complete base URL of the Objecten API to connect to. This generally includes the path /api/v1/.

  • Authentication plugin configuration (authenticationPluginConfiguration). Reference to another plugin configuration that will be used to add authentication to any request performed on the Objecten API. If no option is available in this field a plugin has to be configured that is able to authenticate for the specific application that hosts the Objecten API. (e.g. Object Token Authentication)
