  2. Selects the Partner Domain.

  3. Chooses the certificate to upload (only files with extensions as .cer or .pem).

Partner Certificate upload

Similarly, the Partner certificates can be added by the Partner admin/ partner.

Mapping policy to policy group

Once the certificates are uploaded,

  2. Partner enters the Partner Name.

  3. Selects the Auth Policy Name from the dropdown.

  4. Enters a value for the Request Details (unique value) and clicks Save.

  • Once this is done, you will see a message saying Policy mapping grequest submitted successfully.

  • Also, the status is displayed as "In progress" and this means that the partner cannot generate the API key until the request is approved by the Partner admin.

Approval/ Rejection of partner policy mapping

Once the Partner Policy Mapping request is raised by the partner, the Partner admin has the privilege to approve/ reject the mapping. To do so,

  1. Partner admin logs into the PMS portal and clicks on Partner Policy Mapping in the left navigation pane.

  2. Selects the policy mapping that needs an approval.

  3. From the action menu against the policy mapping, selects Manage Policy.

  4. Clicks Approve.

Once the request is approved, the partner can view the status being updated to Approved instead of InProgress.

Partner logins after the Partner Policy Mapping is approved by the Partner admin and generates the API key with an unique label. To do so,

  1. Partner clicks Partner Policy Mapping on the left navigation pane.

  2. From the actions menu, click Generate API Key.

  3. Partner enters a unique value for the Label field.

  4. Click Generate.

The API key is generated and can be used by the partner.
