This tutorial shows how to manually Authenticate User by providing User Credentials in HTTP Request Parameters.
Then we will compare provided User Credentials with stored Users on order to Authenticate User.
Authentication will only check if User exist but it will not Authenticate User in a sense to give him access to Endpoints.
User Object that is returned does not contain Property which says that User is Authenticated.
Instead Authenticated Users need to be placed in a special pool to allow them access to restricted Endpoint.
And we will not be ding that in this tutorial.
