Authentication

Fortress utilizes Auth0 for secure access and authentication into our APIs. Using the Fortress tenant and hitting the Auth0 API will return a bearer token to be used on all subsequent calls. The response will include a timestamp that will let you know how long the bearer token will be valid for before needing to obtain a new one.

The following is the call needed to obtain your bearer token:

POST {{auth0-url}}/oauth/token

{
  "grant_type": "password",
  "client_id": "{{client-id}}",
  "audience": "https://fortressapi.com/api",
  "username": "{{org-email}}", //Email used to intially setup your organization
  "password": "{{org-password}}", //Password provided by Fortress for Integrator
  "scope": "offline_access"
}

Speak to your Solutions Engineer about acquiring your organization's specific credentials for the above call.
