UiPath Orchestrator API Authentication

When I tried to test the UiPath Orchestrator authentication using UiPath Authentication API in Postman, it always failed to authenticate. I used the same credentials which are used to log into the platform. Has anyone encountered any similar issue? Thanks.

If you are trying to use the UiPath Cloud Orchestrator REST API, it now (2019.10) uses an OAuth authentication scheme.

If you are using On Prem Orchestrator, it still uses Basic Auth (old username / password method works).

I assume, you are using the Cloud Orchestrator. To get this to work, the official documentation is here:

https://docs.uipath.com/orchestrator/reference. Go to the “Consuming Cloud API” at the bottom.

If that proves challenging to follow, I have written a Blog post about how to perform Authentication and Authorization here:

hi @ztkai,

Welcome the UiPath Community Forum Buddy.

the uipath cloud platform have different ways to Authentication , go to the following link to do the authentication https://docs.uipath.com/orchestrator/v2019/reference#consuming-cloud-api

and the rest of the api are same https://docs.uipath.com/orchestrator/v2019/reference#about-odata-and-references

Please follow the step in the given link to run a job through orchestrator api once you get the authentication access key.

Happy Learning😊
