How to use Identity Server API ?

Estimated reading: 1 minute 208 views

The VGIdentityServer documentation provides comprehensive information on how to use the VGIdentityServer API. The document is organized into various sections, each detailing a specific functionality of the API.

One of the main sections is the “Authenticate” folder, which contains all methods for authentication, including VisualGuard, Windows, Database, Passwordless, and more. Each authentication method is explained in detail, with examples of requests and responses provided for clarity.

For instance, the document explains how to authenticate a VisualGuard user account using the POST method. It provides the necessary headers and body parameters required for the request, such as client_id, client_secret, scope, password, grant_type, and AuthenticationMethod.

Similarly, the document also covers the process of authenticating Windows user accounts by credentials. Like the VisualGuard user authentication, it provides a detailed explanation of the request parameters and an example of how to make the request.

We have also the documentation on Postman tool on https://documenter.getpostman.com or Swagger on https://identityserver.demo.visual-guard.com/documentation/index.html
