2Overview of Using the SiebelREST APIThis chapter provides an overview of the Siebel CRM Representational State Transfer (REST)application programming interface (API). It includes the following topics: About Siebel CRM REST API on page 7 About Siebel REST API Architecture on page 8 About Siebel CRM REST API Requests and Responses on page 10 About Siebel CRM REST API URI Formats on page 11 About URI Parameters on page 12 About Siebel CRM REST API Supported Resources on page 13 About Supported HTTP Methods on page 14 About Supported HTTP Header Fields on page 14 About Standard HTTP Status Codes and Error Messages on page 15 About Siebel CRM REST API Response Links on page 16 About User Authentication on page 17 About Configuring OAuth 2.0 for Authentication on page 17About Siebel CRM REST APIREST (Representational State Transfer) is a software architecture style that provides a convenientand consistent approach to requesting and modifying data. In the Siebel CRM RESTful system,resources are stored on the Siebel Server; a client sends a request using an HTTP verb (such as GET,POST, PUT, or DELETE) that the Siebel Server perform a particular action (such as querying,inserting, upserting, or deleting a Siebel CRM resource), and the Siebel Server performs the actionand sends a response.The Siebel REST API is implemented as part of the existing EAI component group, so enabling theEAI component group will enable the REST related components on the Siebel Server. The Siebel RESTAPI exposes Siebel Business Objects, Siebel Business Services, and Siebel Repository Objects. Formore information about Siebel Business Objects, Siebel Business Services, and Siebel RepositoryObjects see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.The following are the salient aspects of the Siebel REST API that are aligned with general bestpractices of REST APIs: A base URI to access Siebel Server resources, for example:http://Server Name:port/siebel-rest/ Support for JSON resource representations.Siebel REST API Guide Siebel Innovation Pack 2016, Rev.

Overview of Using the Siebel REST API About Siebel REST API Architecture Operations on Siebel CRM resources are mapped to semantically similar HTTP methods, such asGET, PUT, POST, AND DELETE. Hypertext links to Siebel CRM Child Business Components in the case of the Data API resourcesin the REST API response.About Siebel REST API ArchitectureThe Siebel CRM REST API services are deployed as a WAR file (siebel-rest.war) on the Siebel JavaWeb Container. The Java Web Container is embedded inside the Siebel CRM server. Siebel REST APIrequests flow through the Siebel Java Web Container. The Siebel Java Web Container routes the RESTAPI requests to the appropriate Siebel CRM Server or Siebel Application Object Manager session.TheSiebel REST Proxy Object Manger proxies for the Java Web Container, allowing management as aSiebel Component. The Java Web Container is managed by the Siebel Rest Proxy Object Manager,which uses the Server Management Infrastructure to manage the Java Web Containers. The Java WebContainer hosts the Siebel CRM REST API infrastructure and provides the Siebel CRM REST APIinterface.If you plan to expose access for all Siebel channels under a single Web domain, then a reverse proxycan be configured in front of both the pre-existing Siebel Web Server and the new Siebel Java WebContainer. Also, if more than one Java Web Container is provisioned, then the Java Web Containerswould need to be load balanced, and that can be done by configuring a Web Server with loadbalancing capability. For more information about reverse proxy and load balancing, see SiebelInstallation Guide for the operating system you are using, Siebel Deployment Planning Guide, andSiebel System Administration Guide.8Siebel REST API Guide Siebel Innovation Pack 2016, Rev.

The Siebel Rest Proxy Object Manager is a backgroundSiebel Server component used to manage the Java Web Container instances so that theexisting Siebel Server Management Infrastructure can start, stop, and restart the instances. Stateless Sessions and Connection Pooling. User Sessions are stateless and reusable. A poolof connections to the Siebel CRM server sessions are maintained by the Java Web Container.To optimize response times, session connections to the Siebel CRM server are held by theJava Web Container for a user until the Siebel Server session times out due to inactivity oris pre-empted by a request from another user when the Connection Pool reaches themaximum size configured. Siebel EAI Object Manager. The Siebel Object Manager serves Siebel CRM REST API requestsas well as legacy SOAP requests.About Siebel CRM REST API Requestsand ResponsesA request can include the following information: A request URI. For more information about URI formats, see “About Siebel CRM REST API URIFormats” on page 11. The request URI contains the base URI signifying what category of Siebel resources to invoke.Siebel resources include: Business Objects, Repository Objects, and Business Services. The request URI contains the object type of the invoked Siebel CRM resource. For example,Account Business Component under Account Business Object. For more information aboutthe supported Siebel CRM resources, “About Siebel CRM REST API Supported Resources” onpage 13. The HTTP method that you use to perform a REST API operation (query, insert, upsert, or delete)on the Siebel CRM Server. For more information about supported HTTP methods, see “AboutSupported HTTP Methods” on page 14 Header information to define the parameters of the interaction with the Siebel CRM Server andthe information and format you want in the response. For more information about supportedHTTP headers, see “About Supported HTTP Header Fields” on page 14.After the Siebel CRM Server processes the request, the server sends back a response. The responsebody contains the results of the REST API call and also additional information based on what wasspecified in the request.The response can include the following information:10Siebel REST API Guide Siebel Innovation Pack 2016, Rev.

Overview of Using the Siebel REST API About URI ParametersAbout URI ParametersWhen constructing a URI, there are a number of optional parameters available to manage responseresults. Some parameters are described in Table 3.Table 3.URI ParametersParameterDescriptionPageSizeInteger that tells the Siebel Server how many records to return. If youquery for all the Siebel contacts whose last name starts with the letter Aand you do not want to get too many records (for performance reasons),then you can restrict the number of records returned. You restrict thenumber of records returned by setting the PageSize parameter to areasonable number. All records that match the search criteria are returned.For example, PageSize 20 returns only twenty contact records, even ifmore exist in the Siebel database. If fewer records exist that match thatsearch criteria, then all records are returned (but no more than twenty).NOTE: It is recommended that you retrieve the lowest number of recordsrequired for any one call. The more records that are returned, the largerthe message and the slower the response. The maximum number of recordscannot exceed 100.StartRowNumUsed when there is a need to start returning records at a specific row. Forexample, StartRowNum 100 starts at row 100 of the record set. The firstnumber in a record set is zero, therefore, this request starts at record 99(given you start counting from one for the first record).This parameter is useful for paging through a record set N records at a time.For example, if there are 100 records in a record set, but you want toretrieve only ten at a time, then enter StartRowNum 0 and PageSize 10on the first call, then StartRowNum 10 on the next call, thenStartRowNum 20 on the next call, and so on.The syntax for using URI parameters is the parameter name followed by an equal sign ( ) with thevalue of the parameter, and each parameter is separated from other parameters by an ampersand(&). For example, if you want to set the PageSize parameter to 100 and the startrow parameter to0 (zero), then you enter: Pagesize 100&StartRowNum 012Siebel REST API Guide Siebel Innovation Pack 2016, Rev.

Overview of Using the Siebel REST API About Siebel CRM REST API SupportedResourcesAbout Siebel CRM REST API SupportedResourcesA REST API resource is a piece of information, such as a data record or a collection of records. EachSiebel CRM REST API resource is identified by a named URI, and it is accessed using standard HTTPmethods. For more information about URI formats, see “About Siebel CRM REST API URI Formats” onpage 11. For more information about standard HTTP methods, see “About Supported HTTP Methods”on page 14.The Siebel CRM REST API supports the following Siebel resources and collections: Siebel Business Service methods that have been configured for Siebel REST API access for userswith a given Siebel Responsibility. For more information about configuring Siebel BusinessServices, see “Configuring Business Service Methods for RESTful Access” on page 28. Siebel Repository Object Types and Siebel Repository Object Instances. All repository objectsthat are supported for access through workspaces are accessible through the Siebel RepositoryREST API. To determine if a repository object is workspace-enabled see the section on editingworkspace-enabled repository objects in Using Siebel Tools. Siebel Business Component records.

The original URL that generated the response. canonical link. The URL for the same resource as the top level resource. If you are alreadyviewing the resource as a top-level resource, then this URL is the same as self. If this resourceis not available as a top-level resource, then this link shows child resource context. parent link. The URL for the parent resource details. This URL of the parent resource is returnedin the response only when retrieving details about a child resource.16Siebel REST API Guide Siebel Innovation Pack 2016, Rev. A

Overview of Using the Siebel REST API About User Authentication child link. The URL for the child resource details. The URL returns the path to retrieve each childcollection for this record. The href attribute contains the child value. A response can returnseveral child links. association link. The URL of a specific resource included in the response. There can be manyassociation links.Each Siebel CRM REST API response link can include the following types of attributes: rel. Indicates the relationship of the linked resource to the current resource that contains the listof links. Values include: Self, Parent, Child, and Canonical. href. Indicates the fully qualified location URL of the linked resource.About User AuthenticationBefore making REST API calls, users must request a session with the Siebel CRM server. Siebel CRMsupports the following mechanisms that the client uses to authentication user credentials: Basic authentication over SSL OAuth user using OAuth 2.0. For more information about OAuth 2.0, see About Configuring OAuth2.0 for Authentication on page 17. SSO, which can be either: Pre-existing SSO mechanisms used for Siebel Applications or EAI SAML based SSO mechanismsAbout Configuring OAuth 2.0 forAuthenticationThe Siebel REST API can use the OAuth 2.0 protocol for authentication to securely identifyapplications before connecting to the Siebel Server.In general, the Siebel REST API layer contacts the OAuth server over a secure channel (for example,HTTPS) to validate the access token received or obtain additional token information. The SiebelServer only requires a USERID to establish a Siebel Server session since authentication takes placeoutside of Siebel in either SSO or OAuth, and does not require password.The following prerequisites are required on the Siebel side before configuring OAuth forauthentication. You must install and set up the components, including OAuth components, to suityour own business needs. Consult the supporting documentation of your chosen components (forexample, Oracle Access Manager and Oracle API Gateway) for more information. The Siebel Object Manager must be configured for SSO when OAuth is enabled for authentication.The related security adapter is also required. In SSO mode, when used with a custom securityadapter, the specified value is passed as the password parameter to a custom security adapterif the value corresponds to the value of the TrustToken parameter defined for the custom securityadapter. For more information about configuring SSO, see Siebel Security Guide.Siebel REST API Guide Siebel Innovation Pack 2016, Rev. A17

Overview of Using the Siebel REST API About Configuring OAuth 2.0 for Authentication The Siebel REST API layer contacts the OAuth server over a secure channel to validate or gettoken information. To enable HTTPS, the required certificates from the OAuth server must beinstalled in the environment where the Siebel REST API is hosted. To bypass HTTPS (the securedchannel), you can set the ValidateCertificate parameter value to FALSE in the siebsrvr.propertiesfile. Oracle does not recommend disabling the secured channel in production. For moreinformation about the siebsrvr.properties file, see “Configuring the Siebel Java Web Container” onpage 24. The following parameters must be set in the siebsrvr.properties file: SingleSignOn. The SingleSignOn property must be set to TRUE to implement SSO. AuthenticationType. The AuthenticationType property must be set to OAuth to implementOAuth authentication TrustToken. The TrustToken value must be the same as the security adapter TrustTokenparameter value. OAuthEndPoint. The OAuthEndPoint value is the URL of the OAuth Service Provider endpoint for Access Token validation. ValidateCertificate. The ValidateCertificate parameter is required to bypass the HTTPSsecured channel. Oracle does not recommend setting the value for this parameter to Falseduring production. Rather, you should set the value at the point when it is required to bypassthe HTTPS secured channel.For more information about the siebsrvr.properties file properties, see “Configuring the Siebel JavaWeb Container” on page 24.While the customer authentication flows vary depending on your business needs, Oracle supports allOAuth 2.0 authentication flows. This topic contains a few sample authentication flows. In allauthentication flows, the Siebel REST API layer extracts and validates the Access Token when theauthentication type value is OAuth. Customers must generate the authorization and access code. TheSiebel Server handles only the resource server initiated flow and any remaining flows must beimplemented by the customer.Client Credentials Grant Authentication FlowThe client credentials grant flow represents an application that calls another application or service,without end user intervention.
