This tutorial describes how your created OGC services (My GeoServices) can be secured in M.App Enterprise. The solution to this are the newly introduced API Keys, which means you can control the access to your hosted WMS, WMTS or WFS services.
An API key describes some form of secret token which is submitted alongside web service (or similar) requests to identify the origin of the request. API Keys are a popular way to secure web services.
In M.App Enterprise you can now create and maintain API keys for your needs. This new option is available in M.App Enterprise Studio in the Security section.
To use the created API key you have a new option available when creating your geoservice. This option is called 'Secure with API Key'.
When using the created WMS, WMTS or WFS you simply put the API Key in the querystring of the URL. The querystring parameter is called 'apiKey'.
(If you create a Geoservice from your My Geoservice the API Key will automatically be added to the URL.)
Example for WMS:
