Overview of the Containers Management API

The platform's Containers Management API ("the Containers API") is used to create and manage data containers.

  • To create a new container, use Create Container.

  • To return information about all the containers that are visible to the user who sent the request, or about a specific container, use List Containers.

  • To delete a container, use Delete Container.

The Containers API is part of the cluster-management APIs and conforms to the related structure and syntax rules — see General Management-API Structure.
The API's endpoint is /api/containers.

The Containers API identifies containers by their IDs. When creating a new container, you set the container name and get back the container ID. See Container Names and IDs.
