Re: Netbackup Rest Api Access from Firefox and Postman

Start by verifying that you can open the NetBackup WebUI from your machine from firefox.. Provide your credentials and login as well

https://<master's_host_name>:1556/netbackup/login

 

Once you verify the login part you can open up PostMan, and do the below for Login and retrieving the authorization token. The Fields marked in RED would be seen in postman window 

---------------------------------------------------

POST
https://<master's_host_name>:1556/netbackup/login

Header
"Content-Type":"application/json"

 

BODY
{
"userName":"Administrator",
"password":"password"
}

---------------------------------------------------

 

That's it.. Click on SEND and you get Results, containing Token, TokenType and Validity

Now Copy the Token as you would need it for any further API calls.

Below is an example to retrieve details of a particular job, here it is job id 2

----------------------------------------------------

GET
https://<master's_host_name>:1556/netbackup/admin/jobs/2


Header (In the GUI you would see multiple fields under Header, the below are Name:Value Pairs

Content-Type":"application/json"

Authorization
<the value returned by the Login API call>

----------------------------------------------------

In the PostMan GUI it would appear something like the attachment

@Arturo_Lopez 

If you are using Postman then you need to disable "SSL Certificate Verification"

File --> Setting --> General --> SSL Certificate Verification --> OFF

Then try the steps mentioned my @Amol_Nair 

Request type -> POST

URI -> https://<master's_host_name>:1556/netbackup/login

Header -> Key -> Content-Type (type this)

Header -> Value -> application/json (value for key  Content-Type)

Body -> raw -> In drop down next to - raw - select JSON [application/json]

Send

 

This should work
