    Hi experts,

    Is it really possible to use REST API in Clarity 15.7 ?

    I'm trying to use it on development environment in order to process REST with gelscript.

    I have already enabled the REST API from System Options and sucessfully used the Describe feature ".../niku/rest/describe/index.html"

    But, whenever i try to access the API URL (..../ppm/rest/v1) I receive a 401 error (unauthorized).

    Is it due to CORS ?

    Or do I need any additional authorization from Broadcom ?

    Thanks for any help.

    Vitor.

    Nope this is nothing to do with CORS here, in the API Documentation URL you need to login too, lets say you want to get the projects and in the response class you see  red exclamation mark and if you click and it will request you to provide the credentials and then only you will be able to login and get the projects if you have the access to see that project. Hope this helps

    Not In the way we're accustomed to using the SOAP interface.
    The REST API is geared towards creating new bolt-on apps (which inherently have a live person on the other side providing credentials), not unattended interfaces.

    To get around this limitation, recent Clarity versions allows you to create and save API keys that expire after a certain time (don't know the max, but 'never' is not an option).

    I haven't tried it, but here is some information on Key based access.
