When you’re creating your REST API, most of the time you don’t want it to be publically accessible. Moreover, sometimes you’d like to restrict certain paths for users with specific roles (for example administrators).
In this blog post, I’m going to provide very basic Spring Security integration for Spring Boot application written in Kotlin language.
Please note that I’m using the example REST API I provided in the previous article. So if you don’t have your Spring Boot REST API built yet, move through the steps I described there.
