The Hitachi Content Platform for cloud scale (HCP for cloud scale) system includes RESTful application programming interfaces (APIs) that you can use to exercise its functions and manage the system.

Anything you can do in the Object Storage Management, S3 Console, or System Management application GUIs you can also do using APIs.

Object Storage Management API

The Object Storage Management application includes a RESTful API for administrative functions such as managing storage components, configuring Amazon S3 settings, and obtaining or revoking S3 user credentials. For more information on the Object Storage Management API, see the MAPI Reference.

System Management API

The System Management application includes a RESTful API for system management functions such as system monitoring, service monitoring, user registration, and configuration. For more information on the System Management API, see the Swagger interface in the System Management application.

Amazon S3 API

The S3 Console application uses the Amazon S3 API for object functions such as reading and writing, listing, and setting retention or encryption policies on objects. Unless otherwise noted, HCP for cloud scale is fully compatible with the Amazon S3 API. For more information on the S3 API, see the documentation provided by Amazon Web Services.
