How to authenticate Netapp Ontap XML api with SAML authentication

nyxtom

Hello,

 

Currently I've been using the Netapp Ontap < 9.x XML api by making simple HTTP Post requests with basic authentication to the servlet: /servlets/netapp.servlets.admin.XMLrequest like many of the docs and examples have shown.

 

Recently, one of our systems has enabled SAML authentication and as a result I am currently unable to make requests to the same api using the standard HTTP Post and passing along the user/pass in the headers like I was before. Usually I will get a redirect for these HTTP Post requests.

 

How would I go about implementing authentication on top of what I already have to get it working again?

Hi

 

You need to choose how a given user will authenticate (SMAL/password/domain/public key).

Right I got that far, but I'm not exactly sure on the actual implementation if it's based on SAML. Are there any examples for this sort of thing?
