We have a Wireless LAN controller WLC8500 and we need to manage it through API. We have read about REST API for this purpose. Based on the link below where the commands to Add/Edit/delete WLAN are listed, our request should be feasible but we need more information about the type of API (web, socket or RPC,..) supported on the WLC and how we can access it?
Hi, I know it´s an old thread, but I have the same question. Did you finally find an API or similar? I use to work with SNMP and MIB locator, but I would like to use API on this ocasion. Thanks!
The current SA states something different :)))
A vulnerability in the REST API of Cisco 5500 and 8500 Series Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) Software could allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to view system information that under normal circumstances should be prohibited.
I believe the Security Alert relates to the WLC's Webhook API that was added in v8.7.

There's also a Cisco Video about webhook here;
