APIs can be very useful to automate processes and integrate systems. VMware Workspace ONE Access has a full set of REST APIs that you can leverage.


The steps below will show you the basic steps to connect to a Workspace ONE Access server and send an API request:


1. Login to your Workspace ONE Access environment as admin. On this example I am using Google Chrome, so the following options may vary if you are using a different browser.

Key: Authorization

Value: HZN <Cookie value copied on step 4>
