Overview of the Sessions Management API

On This Page

The platform's Sessions Management API ("the Sessions API") is used to support user authentication and authorization. The management-API operations (except where otherwise specified) authenticate the sender by requiring a session cookie, and authorize the sender to perform the operation based on the authentication results. You acquire this cookie by using the Session API's Create Session operation.

The Sessions API is part of the cluster-management APIs and conforms to the related structure and syntax rules — see General Management-API Structure.
The API's endpoint is /api/sessions.
