[CLOSED]Calling webfocus rest services

I am trying to call the web focus 8.5 rest services. I used this url to get the CSRF_Token and I successfully got it.


When I tried to call other actions like run, it is throwing the 403 forbidden error. Can any one please help me out?

Thank You

Hello Snadhya j,

Can you please update your signature to indicate the version of WebFOCUS you are running. This will help us help you with your issue.

In the meantime please review RESTful Web Services documentation available here:

WebFOCUS RESTful Web Services Developer's Guide

Chap.2 WebFOCUS Managed Reporting RESTful Web Service Requests
p. 15 Authenticating WebFOCUS Sign-On Requests

While we wait for others to reply - let us know if the documentation helps out with what you are trying to do.

Thank you for participating in the Focal Point Forum.

Kindest regards,
