Trait for ResourceTestBase subclasses testing $auth=NULL, i.e. authless/anon.


  • When no authentication provider is being used, there also cannot be any particular error response for missing authentication, since by definition there is not any authentication.
  • For the same reason, there are no authentication edge cases to test.
  • Because no authentication is required, this is vulnerable to CSRF attacks by design. Hence a REST resource should probably only allow for anonymous for safe (GET/HEAD) HTTP methods, and only with extreme care should unsafe (POST/PATCH/DELETE) HTTP methods be allowed for a REST resource that allows anonymous access.
