The RSA SecurID Access Unlock User Tokencodes API enables Help Desk administrators to unlock a user's Authenticate Tokencode, SMS Tokencode, and Voice Tokencode.
Note: The client requests the RSA SecurID Access User Details API to retrieve the User ID before it sends a request to the Unlock User Tokencodes API.
For more information, see Unlock All Tokencodes for a User.
Clients calling this API must authenticate themselves by including a JSON Web Token in a request. For instructions on using this token, see Authentication for the Cloud Administration REST APIs .
This API can use an API key that is associated with either the Super Administrator or Help Desk Administrator role. For more information, see Manage the Cloud Administration REST API Keys.
