RESTful API Reference

Tenant Logon Session

Service providers can allow tenants to log on to Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager RESTful API and perform operations with resources available to a specific tenant. To create a new logon session for the tenant, you need to provide tenant credentials in the body of the POST HTTP request to the URL of the /sessionMngr/ resource. Credentials for the tenant account must be provided in the TenantCredentials element.

To learn more about creating a new logon session, see Perform Logon.

The request body must contain the following elements:

Element

Type

Description

Modifiable

Min/Max Occurrence

Username

String

User name of the tenant account.

Yes

1/1

Password

String

Password for the tenant account.

Yes

1/1

For example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<LoginSpec xmlns="http://www.veeam.com/ent/v1.0" xmlns:xsd="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance">
 <TenantCredentials>
   <Username>ABC Company</Username>
   <Password>P@ssw0rd</Password>
 </TenantCredentials>
</LoginSpec>

In the response, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager will return a representation of the /sessionMngr/ resource with a link to the Cloud Connect service resource. For example:

<LogonSession xmlns="http://www.veeam.com/ent/v1.0" Type="LogonSession" Href="http://localhost:9399/api/logonSessions/362da803-804d-4c32-ad35-0972e432460b">
 <Links>
   <Link Rel="Up" Type="EnterpriseManager" Href="http://localhost:9399/api/" />
   <Link Rel="Down" Type="CloudConnectService" Href="http://localhost:9399/api/cloud" />
   <Link Rel="Delete" Type="LogonSession" Href="http://localhost:9399/api/logonSessions/362da803-804d-4c32-ad35-0972e432460b" />
 </Links>
 <UserName>SRV36\Administrator</UserName>
 <SessionId>362da803-804d-4c32-ad35-0972e432460b</SessionId>
</LogonSession>

In the Cloud Connect service resource representation, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager will return a list of resources with which the specified tenant can work using Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager RESTful API. For example:
