The functionality of our products are usually triggered by “standard” flows, such as a federation request or an LDAP change. Another way of triggering and using the functionality is to consume the APIs exposed by the products. Using the APIs makes it possible for all kinds of services to consume the functionalities in a fine-grained manner, controlling exactly how and when to use a specific function. API calls may also be combined with “standard” flows.

API USE CASE EXAMPLE: IDENTITY ENRICHMENT
Use API methods to enrich the identity with additional identity attributes. For example, send an email address value to the API and get additional identity properties in the response, such as role, title, department and name.
