Documentation needed for using BO API

Status : Declined
over 2 years ago

We have a need to update and/or delete many users from BO and we would like some official documentation on how to do this. We have been given help on how to authenticate with BO using the API, and how to update certain tenant settings, but not how to update a user (for example their authentication type), or how to delete a user from BO. It would be very useful if there was BO API documentation similar to how there is SMAX API documentation.

  • Hi,

    We have received documentation from Micro Focus on how to amend UPNs in BO. If we do this now it will cause issues as it will try to create users with the same UPN. So we need to delete users from BO. To do this manually we first change the authentication type to DB as we cannot delete federated users, then we delete the user. As we have a lot of users to delete we would like information on how to do this with the BO API, as well as information on what else we can do using the BO API.

  • Hi  - Declined and can re-open based on the answers. 

    Two questions: 

    - The manage persion API allows you to delete user (and set default authentifcaiton type). Why are you asking to use the BO API ?

    - What is the scenario/use case for changing authentication type?

    Thanks!
