Fetching vRLCM API Token and Executing API's using Postman

Updated: Jun 13, 2022

Every LCM Installation comes with inbuilt swagger documentation which can be accessed at https://<<vRLCM-FQDN>>/api endpoint of the LCM installation.

Please refer to the swagger documentation for the APIs mentioned below on details of the REST methods.

The swagger API page provides an example of payloads and also allows the user to try the APIs from the web page itself.


All the APIs need a valid authentication token to be provided in the header

As a first step one has to create an environment in Postman

You would have to mention the vRealize Suite Lifecycle Manager URL, Username and the Password

Once done to fetch the token we should execute a POST call to https://{{lcmurl}}/lcm/authzn/api/login

Then when we click on "SEND" the respond body would say as login successfully

When you click on headers, The value what you see under Set-Cookie is your token

Now using the cookie fetched above, I will now be able to execute API calls to perform certain functions on vRSLCM 8.x

In the below example I am fetching certificates from locker using API call. I used the session ID generated from the above example as Set-Cookie value inside the call.


In the same way, one can fetch passwords from the locker as well.

Shall add more examples soon.
