Authenticating to the HCL Compass REST API

Before making an API call, you must authenticate with the REST API server and use POST to obtain an authorization token.

About this task

The authentication endpoint is POST/authenticate. Use POST to obtain an authorization token to the REST API server: POST https:// localhost:8190/ccmweb/rest/authenticate.

To obtain the token, you must pass payload AuthInfo json in the body.
  "username": "engineer",
  "password": "samplepassword",
  "repo": "SampleRepository",
  "db": "SampleDatabase"
After successful authentication, the API returns a token:
  "token": "eyJhbGciOiJIUzUxMiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJhZG1pbiIsInJlcG8iOiIxMC4wLjAiLCJleHAiOjE1NzM2NjE5NDUsImlhdCI6MTU3MzU3NTU0NSwiZGIiOiJTQU1QTCJ9.Lgdk9gPm6mFFGEnr6mRt7Vrq-nTnlP86ARKc16bP4syeTIvKQ55JX5r6aFXVC20xC2NwsjqbvAhd2f1r2PiIUA"
For any subsequent API call, you must pass the token value in the Authorization header in bearer format:
Authorization: Bearer <token_value>
For example:
Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJIUzUxMiJ9.eyJzdWIiOiJhZG1pbiIsInJlcG8iOiIxMC4wLjAiLCJleHAiOjE1NzM2NjE5NDUsImlhdCI6MTU3MzU3NTU0NSwiZGIiOiJTQU1QTCJ9.Lgdk9gPm6mFFGEnr6mRt7Vrq-nTnlP86ARKc16bP4syeTIvKQ55JX5r6aFXVC20xC2NwsjqbvAhd2f1r2PiIUA
