This document describes what REST is and explains how to use it in ACS 5.x.
What is REST?
REST is known as “web service” without the SOAP wrapping and it stands for “Representational State Transfer”. REST is implemented over HTTPS and not HTTP.
With ACS 5.x we can use REST as an alternative to import / export operations of objects through CSV files. ACS 5.x supports CRUD operations
(Create, Read, Update, Delete) on its objects through REST. When using REST, ACS objects are returned / sent in simple XML format. Each CRUD operation is represented by different HTTP method, e.g. for read -- GET, for create -- POST, etc.
REST can be used with ACS 5.x for following:
-Programmatically retrieve ACS version
-Programmatically use CRUD operation on the following objects:
-Programmatically Retrieve list of ACS error codes
-Programmatically Retrieve Service Location
-Programmatically Retrieve list of all ACS nodes in distributed environment
