REST APIs allow you to expose data and functionality of your application over HTTP to be used by other systems.
This project illustrates how to add custom authentication logic to an exposed REST API:
1. In the REST API, set the 'Authentication' property to Custom.
2. Implement your authentication logic in the 'OnAuthentication' callback action. To access values received in the request, use the following actions of the HTTPRequestHandler module:
     - GetFormValue
     - GetRequestHeader
     - GetRequestBody
If the authentication succeeds, the invoked REST API method is executed immediately after.
Otherwise an exception is raised, the request is aborted, and the response returns the error.
