The organization has its own GitLab server. I am trying to make this stack overflow example work within the organization: GitLab API - How to get private_token using GET with session parameter? - Stack Overflow .
The short answer to the stack overflow question is, POST to
https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/session?login=XXX&password=YYY to get back the private token. When I attempt to use
https://gitlab.example.com/api/v4/session?login=XXX&password=YYY, I get a 404 error back. The error happens with both cURL and the browser.
I’ve tried using Search in the API area, but it cannot locate documentation on how to login or what the session is. (It seems like session does not exist). Searching for “API login” and “API authenticate” is returning useless results.
Where is the documentation on logins and authentication? And where is the documentation on URI components like
session? Where can I find a list of top-level URI components with an explanation of each?
Thanks in advance.
