Overview of the resource categories

The resources available through the ONTAP REST API are organized in categories, as displayed in the ONTAP API online documentation. A brief description of each of the resources is presented below along with additional usage considerations where appropriate.

The REST resources described in this summary are based on the latest version of the product. If you need to understand the changes made from previous releases, see What’s new with the ONTAP REST API as well as the ONTAP Release Notes.

Tip For many of the REST endpoints, you can include a UUID key as part of the path string to access a specific object instance. However, you can also access objects using a property value on a query parameter.
