Identity Manager 9.2 - REST API Reference Guide

Object identifiers

The requests and responses use identifiers for identifying the objects from One Identity Manager. Every time an object is created, the system internally generates a globally unique identifier (GUID). These GUIDs can be used to fetch single objects directly using the API.

Using offset and limit parameters to cycle through records

Some requests result in responses that contain many records. For example, the request for the list of all identities can match hundreds or thousands of identities.

To limit the number of records returned, some of the APIs support the limit and offset query parameters. These parameters allow you to get successive sets of records in successive responses. Specifically, use these query parameters to do the following:

  • Limit the number of records returned in the response to a number you choose, using the query parameter limit.

    For example, the following request returns the first 50 identities:


  • Specify the index of the first record to return in the response, using the query parameter offset.

    The value is zero-based. For example, the following request returns 50 identities, starting with the 101st identity:


    The offset parameter defaults to 0. Therefore, both of the following requests return 50 devices, starting with the first device:



Therefore, to get successive sets of records in successive responses, increase the offset value by the limit value in each request. For example:




The following table summarizes the limit and offset query parameters.

Maximum number of records to show in the response.



Zero-based index of first record to show in the response.


Session object global variables

Global variables are allocated by the set up program. All environment variables and custom variables defined for the session object can be used in addition to predefined variables. Custom session variables can be defined, for example, through scripts, methods, or customizers.

NOTE: If a custom session variable is defined, it must be removed again afterward. Otherwise it remains for the rest of the session and, in certain circumstances, the wrong processes can be generated.

NOTE: New API methods to handle the global variables have been added to the /api path of the Application Server starting with One Identity Manager version 8.2. This allows to access the global variables even if the Application Server is restricted to the pure REST API only. For more information, see Running the Application Server in REST API only mode.
