The PingDirectory server provides a Configuration API when updating the server configuration with LDAP is not possible. The API is consistent with the System for Cross-domain Identity Management (SCIM) 2.0 protocol and uses JSON as a text exchange format, so all request headers allow the application/json content type.
To add the extension to one of the server’s HTTP Connection Handlers, run the
$ bin/dsconfig set-connection-handler-prop \ --handler-name "HTTPS Connection Handler" \ --add http-servlet-extension:ConfigurationNote:
By default, the extension is enabled for new installations. You can enable the extension for existing deployments.The API is made available on the HTTPS Connection Handler’s host:port in the
/configcontext. Due to the potentially sensitive nature of the server’s configuration, use the HTTPS Connection Handler for hosting the configuration extension.
