API PHP code
Question asked by Alex Johnson - June 22 at 6:51 AM

According to this page "https://mail.smartertools.com/Documentation/api#/reference/SmarterMail.Web.Controllers.Api.AuthenticationController/RetrieveLoginToken" we can create an auto-login token for any given user (email account) on the system if we generate the token with system admin credentials.

Could someone please share the PHP code for such action?

I've created a php code for temporary-password-generation but the following error has accord:

Looks like you're missing an information in the target URL

From the API docs:

var url = SmarterMailUrl + "api/v1/auth/generate-temp-pass/" + input_email + ""; 

So I guess it should be something like api/v1/auth/generate-temp-pass/user@domain.tld

Not tested, I did not use this call (yet)

I tested it from Katalon Studio, it works, but you need first to impersonate as the domain administrator for domain.tld using api/v1/settings/sysadmin/manage-domain.


Step 1/ Login as system admin account and get auth token
Step 2/ Get new token to manage specific domain api/v1//settings/sysadmin/manage-domain/domain.tld
Step 3/ Call generate-temp-pass api/v1/auth/generate-temp-pass/user@domain.tld
