BigIQ 7.0 API Auth via LDAP

I'm attempting to authenticate to a BigIQ over the rest API, but the documentation only gives an example for local login (

I can successfully authenticate via local login, but I can't seem to find how to authenticate via LDAP. There is an Active Directory provider named "LDAP" and I can log into the management interface with those credentials.

Does anyone know how to format the body of the POST for a provider that isn't the local provider?

  • Looks like if you use the Big-IP version of the auth parameters (i.e. "loginProviderName"), it works.

    On IQ you had to create each user that will have access to it. But select LDAP no local.
