Use case — authentication failure

The switch will return an error if authentication fails:
WorkStation# curl --noproxy -X POST -d '{"userName":"test", "password":"test"}'

Switch response upon failure:

 "message": "Authentication failed."
  • An operator may only use the GET method. A manager is supported for all methods.

  • Posting a login request is not required and requests may be sent without a cookie if a user name is not configured.

Other failure causes

1. The wrong username/password is sent to create login sessions.

2. The user is configured and REST requests are sent without session id.
