API, Powershell

Managing Kiuwan users through API with PowerShell

If you have Kiuwan with enabled SAML, and you manage access to the enterprise app using groups – this script is for you.

With this script running from time to time (in my case it is every 15 minutes) after a user manager in Kiuwan adds a user – user is added to the relevant group in Active Directory. If user is removed – then certain user is removed from the Active Directory group.

The script can be found here, the key part is this:

$USER = "Kiuwan_API_User"

$password = 'PutPasswordHere'

$HeaderAuth = [Convert]::ToBase64String([Text.Encoding]::ASCII.GetBytes(("{0}:{1}" -f $USER, $password)))
$SessionHeader = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]"
$SessionHeader.Add('Authorization',('Basic {0}' -f $HeaderAuth))


$URL = "https://api.kiuwan.com/users"
$APIResponse = Invoke-RestMethod -Method Get -Uri $URL -Headers  $Sessionheader -Verbose -TimeoutSec 33
