Chapter 2. Admin REST API
Red Hat Single Sign-On comes with a fully functional Admin REST API with all features provided by the Admin Console.
To invoke the API you need to obtain an access token with the appropriate permissions. The required permissions are described in Server Administration Guide.
A token can be obtained by enabling authenticating to your application with Red Hat Single Sign-On; see the Securing Applications and Services Guide. You can also use direct access grant to obtain an access token.
For complete documentation see API Documentation.
2.1. Example using CURL
Obtain access token for user in the realm
master with username
admin and password
curl \ -d "client_id=admin-cli" \ -d "username=admin" \ -d "password=password" \ -d "grant_type=password" \ "http://localhost:8080/auth/realms/master/protocol/openid-connect/token"
By default this token expires in 1 minute
The result will be a JSON document. To invoke the API you need to extract the value of the
access_token property. You can then invoke the API by including the value in the
Authorization header of requests to the API.
The following example shows how to get the details of the master realm:
curl \ -H "Authorization: bearer eyJhbGciOiJSUz..." \ "http://localhost:8080/auth/admin/realms/master"
