Introduction to the REST API

Ops Center Protector REST API User Guide

Part Number

Hitachi Ops Center Protector exposes a Representational State Transfer (REST) application programming interface (API) solely over HTTPS which can be accessed using any scripting or programming language which supports making HTTPS requests.

The API requests are governed by Role Based Access Control (RBAC) which itself can be configured using the API (or via the application graphical user interface (GUI)).

Once the user is authenticated (by logging in with valid credentials) they are able to perform tasks in the roles for which they are authorized.

The user interface solely uses the REST API so 100% of the functionality available in the user interface is available through the REST API.
