Configure MFA for a RESTful API Client

Applies To: AuthPoint Multi-Factor Authentication, AuthPoint Total Identity Security

The Authentication API is a RESTful API that you can use to add the protection of AuthPoint MFA to custom applications. To use the Authentication API, you must configure a RESTful API Client resource in the AuthPoint management UI. This resource represents your API client, and is used to configure authentication policies that determine how your users can authenticate.

To configure an API resource, from the AuthPoint management UI:

  1. From the AuthPoint navigation menu, select Resources.
  2. Click Add Resource.
    The Add Resource page opens.
  3. From the Type drop-down list, select RESTful API Client.
  4. Type a friendly name for your API resource. Click Save.
  5. Click the name of your API resource. On the Edit Resource page, note the account ID and resource ID values. You need these values when you make calls to the AuthPoint API.
  6. Add an authentication policy for the API resource. Go to About AuthPoint Authentication Policies for more information.

Refer to the API documentation for information about how to make authentication requests.
