Creating OpenAM Realm Using REST

In an earlier post we saw how to create a new realm in ForgeRock OpenAM. But for that we used the Browser User Interface of OpenAM. Well it’s likely that the ForgeRock customers might not be interested in ForgeRock’s implementation of User Interface, but would like to have their own custom way of interacting with the product. For this very purpose, all components of ForgeRock Identity Platform offers easy-to-use RESTful Web API. A neat introduction about it is here. For a detailed look on the RESTful Web Services, I’d recommend ForgeRock documentation.

So in the following screen-cast, we’ll see how we can use a popular command line tool to make REST calls to the OpenAM first for performing authenticaiton and then for creating a realm.
