IONOS Cloud API Overview

Cloud API

The Cloud-API 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.

You have the option to migrate your existing clusters to our managed service or backup/restore logged clusters. DBaaS API currently supports functions for PostgreSQL with more supported database software coming in the future.

Activity Log API

The Activity Log API 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.
