This example shows how to get an access token for a Postman client application when using the Basic Authentication grant type.

Authorization information

For this example, you need to know the following:

  • Token URL - https://<hostname>/api/Authentication.asmx/Authenticate

    Here, the hostname for the identity provider is the same as that for Smart Completions because the basic authentication grant type is only supported for the Smart Completions Authentication identity provider. When using other identity providers, the hostname for the Identity provider will be different than the hostname for Smart Completions.

  • Base URL - https://<hostname>/sc/datalake/v1

  • Username - Your Smart Completions username

  • Password - Your Smart Completions password
