Resources and endpoints

Contributors dmp-netapp

You can use the resources provided through the Astra Control REST API to automate an Astra deployment. Each resource is access through one or more endpoints. This section provides an introduction to the REST resources which you can use as part of planning an automation deployment.

Note The format of the path and full URL used to access the Astra Control resources is based on several values. See URL format for more information. Also see API reference for details about using the Astra resources and endpoints.

Astra Control REST resources and endpoints

The primary resource endpoints provided in the Astra Control REST API are organized in three categories. Each resource can be accessed with the full set of CRUD operations (create, read, update, delete) except where noted.

The Release column indicates the Astra release when the resource was first introduced. This field is bolded for resources newly added with the current release.
