    HI Guys, I need to obtain a token from a security web page:



    Reference for https://aest-segu56/ERPMWebService/JSON/V2/AuthService.svc/DoLogin2

    Login and create an authentication token returned as a JSON object

    Url: https://aest-segu56/ERPMWebService/JSON/V2/AuthService.svc/DoLogin2

    HTTP Method: POST

    Message directionFormatBody

    The following is an example request Xml body:

    <LoginInfo xmlns="">   <Authenticator>String content</Authenticator>   <LoginType>Unknown</LoginType>   <MFATokenCode>String content</MFATokenCode>   <OnBehalfOfUser>     <Username>String content</Username>   </OnBehalfOfUser>   <Password>String content</Password>   <SAMLAudience>String content</SAMLAudience>   <SAMLCert>String content</SAMLCert>   <SAMLDomainGroups>String content</SAMLDomainGroups>   <SAMLDomainUsers>String content</SAMLDomainUsers>   <SAMLIssuer>String content</SAMLIssuer>   <SAMLResponse>String content</SAMLResponse>   <SAMLRoles>String content</SAMLRoles>   <SAMLSubject>String content</SAMLSubject>   <Username>String content</Username> </LoginInfo>


    The data to send is the following:








    I tried using the REST OPERATION ACTION ( I don't understand where to insert the parameters). I got 400 Bad Request Error.




    Did anyone use this before?

    yes, try putting your "data to send" section in to the body of the rest action, that should do it

    Based on that message you might have to add the following to the http headers field: Content-Type: application/json
