This section describes the REST API that can be used to integrate Digital Fax and third party systems, making them capable to automate fax-related activities.

Basic Authentication

The REST API identifies its user with HTTP Basic Authentication. That is, if a function requires authentication, then it requires the Authorization HTTP header, which must be as follows:

Authorization: Basic <userPasswordBase64>

where <userPasswordBase64> is the base64 encoding of <user>:<password>.

For instance, suppose you need to call a function with user="myuser" and password="mypassword". You need to base64-encode the string "myuser:mypassword", which is "bXl1c2VyOm15cGFzc3dvcmQ=", obtaining the following HTTP header:

Authorization: Basic bXl1c2VyOm15cGFzc3dvcmQ=

Basic Authentication with SSO support

Starting from Imagicle 204.Spring.1 release, Imagicle REST APIs can be invoked by a user with SSO authentication. To enable this feature, the following setting file must be amended:


Locate the parameter "AllowBasicAuthForSsoUsersViaWebApi" and change its default value from 0 to 1 ⇒ AllowBasicAuthForSsoUsersViaWebApi=1

UCX Cloud Suite customers can contact Imagicle Support to enable this feature in their Cloud instance.

Postman samples

The attached ZIP file (at the bottom of this page) contains a json collection file that you can import into Postman. It includes some useful samples to understand how to invoke with Postman the relevant API methods.
