Token operation logins a user, either using the username and password, or as part of the SAML 2.0 authentication using the previously fetched samlhash. An access token is returned as a response, which is used to identify the session in the following Web API interactions.

The token request is following:

Url: POST qprpa/token
Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded
Body (form data with username, password and grant_type fields):

When using SAML 2.0 authentication, instead of the password, the url needs to have a samlhash parameter (value for it has been received earlier using /qprpa/saml2/acs):

Url: POST qprpa/token?samlHash=<samlhash>

Note that the path doesn't contain api, unlike other operations in the Web API. Example url: https://customer.onqpr.com/qprpa/token.

Request body contains the following parameters (encoded with x-www-form-urlencoded):

  • username: Login name of the user
  • password: User password (empty in SAML 2.0 authentication)
  • grant_type: use always text "password"

The response contains the following fields:

  • access_token: contains the access token (session id).
  • globalPermissions: Global permissions of the user as comma separated list.
  • serverVersion: Version of the QPR ProcessAnalyzer server.
  • token_type: contains always "bearer"
  • userSettings: All user-specific settings in stringified JSON format. Contains the following settings:
    • uiLanguage: UI language of the user.
    • dateFormat: The date time format used to present dates.
    • firstDayOfWeek: The first day of the week shown in e.g. calendars. 0 is Sunday and 1 is Monday.
    • use12HourClock: Whether the 12-hour clock is used when presenting time information.
