    How to get user credentials for OSN -https://eeho.fa.us2.oraclecloud.com/osn

    1090672

      Hi,

      We are using OSN in our project. The OSN instance that we are using is - https://eeho.fa.us2.oraclecloud.com/osn

      We are trying to automate some of the actions ( creating collections, adding people to collection)  through OSN APIs.

      To use OSN APIs, we need user credentials ( username and password for the instance - https://eeho.fa.us2.oraclecloud.com/osn )

      We do not want to use individual SSO username and password.

      We tried accessing API end point in the browser after clearing cache/cookie- https://eeho.fa.us2.oraclecloud.com/osn/social/api/v1/

      This will throw dialog pop-up box -asking username and password. We tried giving SSO username and password. But, no luck. It fails

       

      We can get rid of this error in the following steps:

      1. First login to - https://eeho.fa.us2.oraclecloud.com/osn/web/cList

      This will ask SSO username and password. Login with SSO username and password.

      2. Now you try accessing - API end (In the same browser, in a different tab) - https://eeho.fa.us2.oraclecloud.com/osn/social/api/v1

      Now it will not ask username and password. (It has authenticated against SSO username/password)

       

      We do not want to use SSO username and password in API calls.

      Please let us know if there is a way to get user credentials created  ( username and password for the instance - https://eeho.fa.us2.oraclecloud.com/osn ).
