Show (Reseller Only)

URL:

[GET] https://api.emailsrvr.com/v1/customers/(customer account number)

Create Login Tokens

URL:

[POST] https://api.emailsrvr.com/v1/customers/(customer account number)/loginToken


Description:

Generate a login token using which a customer can use to SSO into the Control Panel.

Login tokens can be generated for two kinds of users: virtual and non-virtual. The distinction between the two users is that a virtual user gets the administrator's privileges when SSOed into the Control Panel. On the other hand, the non-virtual user gets only as much privileges as are given to him/her when his/her account was created.

Field Name Data Type Description
userName string The name for which login token needs to be created.
virtualUser string A flag indicating whether the user for whom the login token needs to be generated is virtual or non-virtual. Valid values: true/false. When set to true, the userName is treated as a virtual user. When set to false, the userName is treated as a non-virtual user. A non-virtual user must be an existing admin user.


Example:

post '/customers/460896/loginToken', {'userName' => 'dev_cust_limitedadmin', 'virtualUser' => 'true'}

Create login token for virtual user 'dev_cust_limitedadmin'.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<loginToken xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" 

xmlns="urn:xml:loginToken">

  <user>dev_cust_limitedadmin_460896_vu</user>

  <token>EEB0012D8DBC2CAC26E28365D44B537FFF0D79350</token>

  <dateCreated>6/11/2010 10:53:46 AM</dateCreated>

</loginToken>


The login token is valid for ten minutes after its creation. The "dateCreated" field indicates the time when the login token is created.

Using the above created login token the customer with account number 460896 can SSO into the Control Panel using the following URL:

http://ControlPanelURL/TokenLogin.aspx?loginToken=EEB0012D8DBC2CAC26E28365D44B537FFF0D79350

A customer can also use the login token to login on their private label control panel (E.g.: cp.mydomain.com/logintokens.aspx).
