Ensure that you have the appropriate login credentials for creating, managing, and deleting Oracle Blockchain Platform instances, as described in Administering Oracle Blockchain Platform on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (Gen 2).
- User name and password for your Oracle Blockchain Platform account.
To authenticate using cURL use the
-u cURL option to pass the user name and password for your Oracle Blockchain Platform account.
curl -i -X GET -u <username>:<password>\ -H <request-header>:<value>\ https://<rest_server_url:port>/<resource-path>
Note:Multi-factor authentication isn't supported when using basic auth. If you get a 401 authorization error, ensure that the user making the REST calls doesn't have multi-factor authentication enabled.
Using Default Authentication
If you are using the default REST authentication, the administrator of the Oracle Blockchain Platform instance must have also granted you the
REST_CLIENT role under the
<instance_name>_<id> in Oracle Identity Cloud Service (IDCS) or your Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Identity and Access Management (IAM) identity domain before you can interact with the instance using the REST API.
