ColdFusion API Manager 2016 Update 1
ColdFusion API Manager 2016 Update 1 (Publish date: June 8, 2017)
What's new in this update
Token-based authentication support
In this update, we have added token-based authentication support for Portal and Administrator API's.
- A token is passed with the username and password in JSON. This results in the same response as the login call, except there is an additional field in the response JSON called token. No cookies are sent as part of the response. For example, http (s)://<IP>:<Port>/amp/portal/login/token (For login to admin, change to /admin instead of /portal). The request is of POST type with the username and password in body as JSON format.
- Log out to revoke the token acquired during the API call. For example, http (s)://<IP><Port>/amp/portal/login/token/revoke?token=<Token that you’ve received from the 1st step>. (For login to admin, change to /admin instead of /portal)
- The token is always passed to the API in Authorization Header value as Bearer <Token>. For example, Authorization: Bearer <Token>
Swagger import options
There are two new ways of importing REST resources based on Swagger specifications. They are:

API request and response logging
Log all requests and responses made by your API to a file apimanager-trace.log located in /ColdFusion_2016_install_directory/logs.
