Question:
How can we enable or access UIMAPI or web services Rest calls in UIM SaaS
Environment:
UIM SaaS 9.X
 
Answer:
Comment from UIM Saas Product Owners:

Neither the UIMAPI nor the UIM Webservice_rest packages are supported in the uimsaas cloud environment.

Currently the user only knows DXI authentication and not UIM authentication user/password, there would be no way of a customer using uimapi in the uimsaas cloud environment.

Also, the webservices_rest package is deprecated and should not be used anymore - uimapi is the supported rest service going forward.

Even if authentication was changed, we didn’t want this package on cloud ump instances because someone could perform the equivalent of a denial-of-service attack quite easily by flooding the server - impacting all customers.

Currently, there are no plans to allow for this functionality in the future.
