Create an Administrative Access Details Assignment

After you have created your administrative access details (POST /{custid}/adminaccess), you can assign your administrative access details to a system entity that is either within EBSCO-KB or external to EBSCO-KB. A system entity is an EBSCO-KB entity such as a provider, package or package-title or an external URI. The request will yield an assignment id for the assignment.

To Assign Administrative Access Details to a System Entity (example):

Gather the following information for the request:

  • The customer ID and the API Key.
  • The administrative access ID for the administrative access details that you would like to create the assignment for. This will be the object id parameter.
  • The assignment object. The assignment object defines the access, assignment details and the system entity link for the assignment.
