Mission Control API: Connection FQDN authentication

Using the API is an alternative way to configure and use your Mission Control account. This can be useful if you are interested in writing programs to explore and automate the use of our features.

In this guide we will give you an example of using our API docs GUI. Hopefully this will give you a base for writing programs to interact with our API.

Before we begin, we must tell the API our credentials so the API knows which portal account we will be using it with(and who we are).

For how to do this, please refer to our article on "Authentication and Tokens" after updating your credentials you can follow on from here.

Set a connection to use FQDN authentication:

Sets the connection given by: connection_id to use FQDN-based authentication. This will remove any other authentication type set for the connection. Please note that domains themselves are not added through this endpoint. Please see the FQDNs endpoint for operations involving adding and removing domains. The fields user_name and password are not required for this authentication type, but the connection will be unusable on outbound profiles if they are not set.

To do this click on the Mission Control API link on the left hand side, and click connection_fqdnauth then continue as follows.

  • Under Parameters, enter the id of the connection in the "connection_id" box
  • Double click on the sample body sample on the right hand side and it's content will appear in the "credentials" box then you can edit as preferred and then click on the "TRY IT OUT" button. Please see screen prints below:

Sets the connection given by :connection_id to use IP-based authentication. This will remove any other authentication type set for the connection. Please note that authorized IP addresses are not added through this endpoint. Please see the authorized_ips endpoint for operations involving adding and removing authorized IPs.
