VBCS Fixed Credentials Configuration for backend API Service Connection!!!

Customer builds the solution but was having issue with existing solution. Problem was when One user e.g. Sys Admin User ID (Administrator role) login using his credentials, he can see combobox populated with IDCS users name. However, when another business user when they login they can’t see combobox fetching IDCS User list. Obliviously, its permission issue. Sys Admin being part of IDCS Admin group has all privilege but other users in his tenancy are not, hence problem was coming.

Now, VBCS has two mechanisms for Identity propagation. Please read this section for more info.  a) login user identity gets propagated to invoke REST API as part of service connection b) Developer can use fixed credentials to invoke backend REST API using service connection.
