Login REST api not supported on 7.x version


Just trying to understand why the Login REST api is not supported on the 7.x version. I just updated from 6.3.0 to 7.x and seems like my integration which uses the REST api under the hood has started failing giving me 404 - Not found error on Login call.

@hozawa - the login using REST does not seems to work on community edition, I contacted Tibco support for the same (using a commerical support id) and they informed me that they made a fix for the commercial edition but for community edition they do not perform hotfix kind of support. That was really strange to me. They asked me the use the j_spring_security_check instead.


During my test I get 404 - Not found on the login REST url.

2 Answers:

Exactly which REST API are you trying to use?

7.1.0 still has Login authentication APIs.

In the documentation of 7.1.0 there is Rest Api Login, but when using it, error 404 occurs.

To get around the error, I used the "rest_v2 / users" validating the existence of the user.
