    REST API is possible through IDM but unfortunately we don't have any sample code for you to work with.


    Most of our customers who use REST API calls use the https://<hostnam>/iam/im/TEWS6/<ENV-NAME>?wsdl 

     

    WSDL URL to make calls and proceed from there as this is already sufficient enough to create, delete and modify users.

    Thanks for the the Response Gordon. 

    Using SoapUI we tested creating an user by accessing url https://<hostnam>/iam/im/TEWS6/<ENV-NAME>?wsdl  as as a soap service

    "Most of our customers who use REST API calls use the https://<hostnam>/iam/im/TEWS6/<ENV-NAME>?wsdl "

     

    it means we should as CA API Managements product or some java code to produce rest apis as front end  and call above url for backend r8? 

     does IDM it self produce a wadl or Raml or swagger kind of thing?

    Currently version of IDM supports SOAP based TEWS API only by out of the box. 

     

    There is an idea for REST support - TEWS REST Interface 

     

    Yes, you could use any API Management tool or custom code to translate SOAP to REST as per your need. Also refer comment section from the above idea @Roberto has mentioned few guidelines using API gateway.
