Adds authentication with Content Services to a route within the app.


The Auth Guard Ecm service implements an Angular route guard to check the user is logged into Content Services. This is typically used with the canActivate guard check in the route definition:

const appRoutes: Routes = [
        path: 'examplepath',
        component: ExampleComponent,
        canActivate: [ AuthGuardEcm ]      // <- Requires authentication for this route.

If the user now clicks on a link or button that follows this route, they will be prompted to log in before proceeding.

This service only accepts authentication with ACS but you can use the Auth Guard Bpm service to authenticate against APS or the Auth Guard service to authenticate against either APS or ACS. See the ADF custom page tutorial for worked examples of all three guards.
