Tech Tip (Video): CA SSO r12.7:  REST API : How to use Policy Export/Import API 

05-19-2017 03:01 AM


CA Single Sign-On 12.7 provides the following new Policy Object REST APIs:

  • Administrative Token API – Obtain a JWT token that is required to access the Policy Data API.

  • Policy Data API – Create, read, update, and delete objects (including federation entities and partnerships, and certificate services) in the policy store.

  • Policy Import/Export API – Export and import specified subsets of the policy data in the policy store.

In this tutorial I will demonstrate how to utilize the REST API for Policy Export & Import to perform a granular export of single Domain and its related objects.

We will use the embedded REST API client built using Swagger framework to perform the REST operations.

Hi Makesh,


1. You can't export object without its dependent object.

2. Yes , you can export multiple objects.

Hi Ujwol,


Really nice video to get basic understanding of Policy API.


Couple of questions:


1. In my use-case i would like to use my existing AuthScheme, Agent Group on Target env. i want to export just Domain objects alone from Source env without dependent objects, is it possible to do that ? Does the export method "Overlay" will help in this scenario?


2. Does the Rest API allow export multiple domain objects in a single XML output (may be comma separated domain name in export parameters like the below)?


“path” : “/SmDomains/testdomain1, /smDomains/testdomain2”
