API Guide

RIPS exposes a rich API, an interface specifically designed for developers and their applications. It enables easy automation of all RIPS features through other programs.

The RESTful API is based on the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and provides stateless operations to easily fetch and manipulate data in a machine-readable format from RIPS by using existing HTTP libraries.

The RIPS API is defined by the OpenAPI 2.0 standard written in YAML. We recommend using a client like Swagger to easily navigate through the specification.

You can find out more in our API blog post.
