Adding a user with CAC credentials using the REST API


All of the examples I've been able find on the internet involve Crowd user accounts with a PASSWORD. I want to add users with CAC Credentials.

I believe that your only option is a password. Can you confirm what you mean by CAC credentials though?


You are correct, the only option is a password. However, since I have posted this, I learned that my organization already has a process in place to handle it. Users are created with a psuedo random password, and then the CAC credentials are added via SQL as a second step.

Company policy prevents me from posting the exact code here, but I think I can safely say that we add a new entry in cwd_user_attribute with attribute_name = 'commonName' and attribute_lower_value = CAC credentials.
