Getting Access to the API

Before you can use the Centrify Identity Services API to explore and experiment, your organization must be subscribed to at least one Centrify service. If you have access to a Centrify Identity Services customer-specific URL, you can browse functions and use the API in custom scripts and applications.

Additional access options for developers

If you plan to make extensive use of the identity service API, you might want to join the Centrify Developer Partner Program to get access to additional development resources.

If you do not have access to a customer-specific URL but are an independent software vendor and want to set up single sign-on (SSO) for applications to run on Centrify Identity Services platform, you can request a free Centrify Express account to access the API.

What you should know to get started

If you have access to a customer-specific URL, custom URL, or a Centrify Express account, you are ready to get started working with the API. To ensure a successful experience, you should be familiar with the following programming formats and tools:

  • JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) format. The API uses JSON for the payload and the response.The encoding is JSON/UTF-8.
  • cURL, Postman, or a similar tool for executing HTTP requests.
  • Fiddler, Chrome Developer Tools, or similar tools for tracing and debugging existing request flows.
