Credential store plugins

The credential store plugins used on SPS. To upload or update a plugin, see Upload a plugin.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/plugins/credentialstore
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Credential stores

Credential Stores offer a way to store user credentials (for example, passwords, private keys, certificates) and use them to login to the target server, without the user having access to the credentials. That way, the users only have to perform gateway authentication on SPS with their usual password (or to an LDAP database), and if the user is allowed to access the target server, SPS automatically logs in using the Credential Store.

Completing the Welcome Wizard using REST

Topics:

Completing the Welcome Wizard using REST

The Welcome Wizard helps you complete the initial configuration of SPS. Starting with version 5 F4, you can complete the Welcome Wizard using REST as well.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/setup
Prerequisites

You can complete the Welcome Wizard only if it has not been already completed. To verify this, access the /api/setup endpoint. If the value of the status field is uninitialized, you can complete the Welcome Wizard.

Sample request

The following command completes the Welcome Wizard. The data content of the request is read from the file body.json. For the details of the body of the request, see Request body.

curl -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d @body.json -X POST https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/setup/
NOTE:

The request automatically fails if there are any other clients connected to the REST or the web interface of SPS.

Response

If completing the Welcome Wizard is successful, you should receive the 303 status code. The body of the response is empty.

If you GET the /api/setup endpoint, the status field of the response should be completed, for example:

{
    "meta": {
        "eula": "https://www.oneidentity.com/legal/sta.aspx",
        "href": "/api/setup",
        "parent": "/api",
