Accessing REST APIs Using Swagger

Many CloudView features are available through REST APIs. You can use Swagger tool to access the REST APIs we support.

Swagger is a widely-adopted specification that allows for programmatically describing REST APIs. The Swagger UI provides all the details about the APIs and how to invoke them. This includes information like the HTTP verbs to use (GET, POST, PUT, etc.), the URL paths, allowable parameters and types, and so on.

Access the documentation and details of the APIs here:

For example, if your account is on US Platform 2
