Logging in to the REST API

After you create an administrator account in FortiManager to use for the SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA REST API, you are ready to use the API.

To log in to the SD-WAN Orchestrator MEA REST API: 
  1. Use the JSON RPC standard and the username and passsword for the administrative account you created to log in to the FortiManager API.

    If authentication succeeds, cookies are returned.

  2. Send POST requests to https://<fmg_ip>/fortiwan/jsonrpc with FortiManager cookies.

    The request format is similar to FortiManager JSON API, which is based on the JSON RPC standard.

For an introduction to FortiManager JSON API, see the Fortinet Developer Network site at https://fndn.fortinet.net/. A login is required.
