How do I pass credentials to WFA REST API call

I'm new to running workflows and for test purposes I'm trying to initiate a REST workflow using Fiddler but get a 401 "Unauthorized" response so I'm guessing that I need to supply credentials or authorization cookies?

 

Is there documentation as to what credentials I need to supply and how to supply them in order to make a REST call?

 

In our actual implementation the REST calls will be made from Java so a Java example or documentation would be useful as well.

 

Thanks,

Tony -

 

Please see this doc:

'Hello API server'

https://library.netapp.com/ecmdocs/ECMLP2606592/html/GUID-962864CD-87E2-4262-9F71-8CF1CE21F3B1.html

 

The URL will be different for WFA.

See the 'Hello World' example in the 'REST API Primer' guide in the WFA documentation.

 


I hope this response has been helpful to you.
