An OAM account

An OAM account is required to use the REST API.

Step 1: Install cURL

The examples within this document use the cURL command line tool to demonstrate how to access the Oracle Access Management REST APIs.

To connect securely to the server, you must install a version of cURL that supports SSL and provide an SSL certificate authority (CA) certificate file or bundle to authenticate against the Verisign CA certificate. For more information about:

The following procedure demonstrates how to install cURL on a Windows 64 bit system.
  1. In your browser, navigate to the cURL home page at http://curl.haxx.se, and then click Download in the left navigation menu.

  2. On the cURL Releases and Downloads page, locate the SSL-enabled version of the cURL software that corresponds to your operating system, and then click the link to download the ZIP file, and install the software.

  3. Navigate to the cURL CA Certs page at http://curl.haxx.se/docs/caextract.html, and then download the ca-bundle.crt SSL certificate authority (CA) certificate bundle into the folder where you installed cURL.

  4. Set the cURL environment variable:
    • Open a command window

    • Navigate to the directory where you installed cURL

    • Set the cURL environment variable (CURL_CA_BUNDLE) to the SSLCA certificate bundle location. For example: C:\curl> set CURL_CA_BUNDLE=ca-bundle.crt

You are now ready to send requests to OAM using cURL.
