Authenticating Using the Client-Based Windows/LDAP Mode

In this scenario, the User is already logged in to the Internet Information Services (IIS) manager using Windows credentials. CSM attempts to leverage the Windows ID and password to log in the User to the REST API so that entering additional credentials is not required. A successful login means the same User is logged in to both the operating system and the REST API.

  1. Make an HTTP POST call to the token operation.
  2. Pass data into the request body:
    grant_type password
    client_id as configured
    auth_mode Windows/LDAP
  3. CSM attempts to log in the User using the Windows credentials leveraged from IIS.

    If the login is successful, an Access token and Refresh token are granted. If the login is unsuccessful, an error is returned.
