    Hi there,

    I have been looking at the API documentation and forum and can't find an answer to my question.

    Wondering if there is a way to set authenticated access to the form - e.g. via API, JWT or IP restriction/redirection - that would enable us to redirect an authenticated user? The use case would be for us to allow only users authenticated through our internal portal or an authenticated system user to be able to access and complete the form. We would also store some attributes from the authenticated user alongside the form for reporting and tracking purposes.

    Also, how does Jotform handle malicious actors (e.g. DDoS) on its online forms, given that the forms are hosted at a publicly accessible static link and there's no CAPTCHA or similar mechanism that is implemented along with the submission?

    Keen to chat with someone who can assist.

    Kind regards,
