Logging In to the Smart Provisioning Redfish Interface


Log in to the Redfish interface when you want to use Smart Provisioning through the Redfish interface.

This section uses the Google Chrome Postman extension program as an example to describe how to log in to the Smart Provisioning Redfish interface.

  • Do not restart the iBMC during the SP startup process.
  • If the iBMC is reset after SP is started, you need to log in to SP again.



  • The client (for example, local PC) is connected to the iBMC management network port.
  • Postman has been installed on the client that uses the Google Chrome browser.

For details about how to install Postman, see Huawei Server iBMC Redfish API Description.


  • IP address of the iBMC management network port
  • iBMC user name and password
