Cloud Director Service Environment API
VMware Cloud Director Service Environment API
The VMware Cloud Director Service Environment REST API introduction is a REST API that you can use as the entry point to a single environment.
As a service provider, you can use the VMware Cloud Director Environment API to create a new VMware Cloud Director instance, to get detailed information about a specific instance, and to update an instance.
You use API tokens to authenticate yourself to the VMware Cloud Director service API. For more information, see the VMware Cloud Director Service API Programming guide.
Calls to the environments are handled through the operator endpoint, i.e. the operator URL.
The Service API includes two main categories.
All VMware Cloud Director instances are managed in environments that are isolated from each other. Calls to list objects in an environment do not list objects in other environments and changes do not affect other environments.
You can use VMware Cloud Director Service Environment API to fetch information about the tasks running in the VMware Cloud Director service console. If a task completion results in the creation of files, you can use the API to download the task files.
