  • 1.  REST API Call to NSX-T Manager Authentication

    Posted Feb 02, 2023 01:58 PM

    Hello,

    I would like to access our NSX-T Manager with via API (Postman). 
    While doing this I notice access is only granted when using a local username like admin. 
    Our Authentication to the managers is done via VIDM - LDAP. If I login to the GUI everything works fine while using my windows username. 
    But this user/authentication doesn't work while using an API call 
    The output on postman is: 
    HTTPS Code 403
    Warning: Self signed certificate in certificate chain

    Any help?

    Hello all!

    I am also interested in the result of this question as well. We also use LDAP for authenticating most of our admins, and not everyone who needs access to API can have a local admin account, and we cannot share local admin password that wide either.

    Hi, 

    I found a solution for our problem: 

    With Postman I use an environment with username and password. 

    The username ist the LDAP user WITH the domain

    <ldap_user>@<domain>.COM

    With this it works for me.
