Application Programming Interface (API)

An API is an intermediary interface between your applications and our cloud offering. It allows these two entities to communicate with each other by sending and receiving information and updates in real time, without manual intervention.

To help you better automate and scale the functionality of our products, we offer several APIs for different use cases.

For complete API documentation, please visit our API Explorer

Cloud API

The Cloud-API is a REST (representational state transfer) based interface that allows you to perform a variety of management tasks, such as spinning up additional servers, adding volumes, adjusting networking, etc. It is designed to allow users to leverage the same power and flexibility found within the DCD visual tool. Both tools are consistent with their concepts and lend well to making the experience smooth and intuitive.

Activity Log API

The Activity Log API is a REST (representational state transfer) based interface that allows contract owners and administrators to discover the log of activity under a specific contract. This makes it possible to audit user activities as well as to make changes to any resources. The activity is grouped by contract and can be refined using date ranges. Activity information is READ-ONLY so all calls made against the Activity Log API will be handled using GET requests.
