NEWSCYCLE Solutions' iServices Authentication uses Newscycle iServices Subscriber business logic to grant users access to premium content areas (usually electronic products) based on subscription information in the Circulation database. It is also used to record digital access by subscribers for AAM purposes.
iServices Authentication can be used in one of two modes: Subscriber Login HTML mode or XML Web Service mode.
Each client site determines the appropriate mode to use, based on:
- The third-party product used to manage the premium content
- The usage scenario
- The desired amount of control over the Login page
There is a 10% recurring maintenance charge associated with this API.
