REST API authorization and authentication

When programming with the Lenovo XClarity Administrator REST APIs, you must authenticate using a user ID and password. The user ID must have the correct authorization to perform the intended task.

You can use Lenovo XClarity Administrator web interface or CLI to configure the authorizations that provide access to Lenovo XClarity Administrator tasks and resources (see Managing user accounts).

Note: If you encounter a temporary HTTP connection error, attempt to log in to Lenovo XClarity Administrator again.
