Welcome to part 4 of this blog series that covers how to call RestAPI through PostMan. To understand how this call is been made with user access having Rest API role
please look into the first two parts of this series.
In this blog, we explain the possibilities of how to authenticate, consume Auth token and other endpoints
Pre-requisites to initiate
- SAP Commission Tenant
- Rest API Role Configured
- User Assigned with API role
- Auth token to call other endpoints
List of API call methods available in Postman:
Fig 1: List of Methods
Step 1: Now, We will initiate the call to get the Auth Token
Request Method: POST
Request URL: https://<tenantid>.callidusondemand.com/CallidusPortal/services/v2/Tokenization/access_token
Refer below Fig2. User should update username and Password
Fig 2 User Authorization
Step 2: We will have to update the JSON payload in Body tab ( as shown in Fig 3)
Fig 3: JSON Payload
Step 4: In below screenshot, you will verify with updated values to make a call
Fig 4: follow the steps with a circled number to initiate a call to get the Auth token
Note: Auth token will expire after 60mins (1hr) from the time auth token is initiated
Now let’s make one endpoint call from referring API Documentation(Part 3) to see if the results are shown through retrieved auth token
Fig 5: JSON results are shown from the GET method call for Participant endpoint request URL
Conclusion: To make RestAPI call, the user should have an API role and auth token for JSON results output. Users can make the integration between any application using above methods.
Developer/User can make use of the SAP API Business HUB for integrations as an API Management tool.
