Custom connector to 3rd party source authorization options
I have a custom connector that pulls data from a 3rd party source. The custom connector is called from a canvas app. When I created the custom connector, I set up basic auth so I entered an admin username and password and everything is working fine.
When other users load the canvas app initially, they are also prompted to create a connection to the custom connector by providing a username and password. Is there any way to inherit the authorization from the connection I made to the 3rd party source or would each person need to individually authenticate using either their own creds or mine if I share them?
ETA I see I can share my connections. Is sharing my connection the custom connector a valid alternative to having each user create their own?
