A number of users wish to create JS7 - Identity Services, populate accounts and to JS7 - Manage Roles and Permissions automatically from individual sources such as a database.


The REST Web Service API can be used to automate operation of JS7.

To add REST Web Service API calls in your preferred language or use the PowerShell cmdlets, refer to:


The following examples use the JS7 PowerShell Module to manage Identity Services, accounts, roles, folders and permissions:

Example for use of PowerShell cmdlets
#!/usr/bin/env pwsh

$TestCaseRoleIncidentManager = "TestCase_Incident_Manager"
$TestCaseFolder = "/TestCase_Folder"
