Overview of the Cluster-Management REST APIs
The platform's cluster-management REST APIs ("the management APIs") provide an alternative to using the dashboard to perform management operations — such as containers management, system administration, and security operations (including management of users, groups, tenants, and data-access polices). The management-APIs are exposed as /api/<API ID> endpoints (for example, /api/containers).
This section describes the general structure of management-API requests and responses, and provides a reference of the following management APIs:
Sessions API for supporting user authentication and authorization.
Containers API for creating and managing containers.
Cluster-Information API for retrieving cluster information.
There are also additional management APIs that are currently undocumented. For more information, contact your Iguazio representative.
