Create the API Client
You need to have a user which is Active but not enabled as Staff
Make sure from the user permissions as it will affect the API calls usage.
As soon as the user is created, navigate to
Resources -> Secrets -> API Clients
and click "add", during this step you can set the Token expiration time (maximum is 60 minutes), and please be sure to download the credentials as they need to be used to retrieve the Token later on
after this step we are ready to use the Token.
Retrieve the Token
To obtain an API token, the API consumer sends a POST request to the /tauth/1.0/token endpoint using the API Client key and Secret key
curl -k -X POST -u '4158a64aa......:89f82ff876644601852....' 'https://D42-IP/tauth/1.0/token/'
where the credentials are the client_key and the secret_key download in the step above. The result will be something like this
we will need to complete value content for the "token" key.
The same step can be done by Postman as well
Making API calls with an API Token
curl -k -X GET -H 'Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9....' 'https://D42-IP/api/2.0/devices/'
after the Bearer word we paste the complete Token value which is obtained from the call above.
The same approach from Postman
curl -k -X POST -d 'name=Head-office&address=NY' -H 'Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9....' 'https://D42-IP/api/1.0/buildings/'
As soon the the Token expires we can use the same call used above to generate a new Token
curl -k -X POST -u '4158a64aa7274f6......:89f82ff8766446.....' 'https://D42-IP/tauth/1.0/token/'
