Provide access for legacy APIs
To use the legacy SOAP and REST API, create a role that provides Web Service-only access, and assign it to a new user. You will use this use to authenticate your calls made with the legacy APIs.
- In the Workload Security console, go to Administration > User Management > Roles.
- Click New.
- Deselect the Allow Access to Deep Security Manager User Interface check box and select the Allow Access to Web Service API check box.
- When all other configuration is complete, click Save.
- Go to Administration User Management > Users and click New.
Create a new user for use only with the Web Service API. Assign the new Role previously created to this user.
