Privilege RESTful Web Services API


The Privilege API can be used to retrieve (by SUNetID) business authority or privileges granted via Authority Manager. Privileges are assignments or authority granted to an individual via Authority Manager to manage access to several administrative applications.

How to get started with the Privilege API

Follow the Middleware and Integration Services Integration (MaIS) checklist for RESTful Web Services. If you need help, are not sure whether the Web APIs are the best method for integrating with the registry, or just have some questions, contact the MaIS team.
