42.0 REST Services

The identity applications components incorporate several REST APIs that enable different features within Identity Applications. The REST APIs and the corresponding documentation are available in the idmappsdoc.war file. The war is automatically deployed when Identity Applications are installed.

The APIs are broadly classified into three categories:

Access

This category includes the APIs that are related to administrator settings, user navigation rights, user permissions, and assignment details.

Admin

This category includes the APIs that are related to logging, caching provisioning display settings, and administrator assignments.

Catalog

This category includes the APIs that are related to roles, resources, SoDs, and driver services.

For more information about REST services, access idmappsdoc in your identity applications server.

NOTE:Identity applications REST services use OAUTH2 protocol to provide authentication. You can invoke these APIs using a browser or curl command in scripts to automate the administrative tasks. For more information, see the REST API documentation.

To access the REST API documentation on the server where identity applications are installed, specify https://<identity applications servername>:<Port>/idmappsdoc, in the address bar of your browser. For example: https://192.168.0.1:8543/idmappsdoc
