REST API Reference Overview

The four main HTTP methods (GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE) are mapped to CRUD operations as follows:

  • GET retrieves the representation of the resource at a specified URI. GET has no side effects on the server.
  • PUT updates a resource at a specified URI.
  • POST creates a new resource. The server assigns the ID for the new object and returns this ID as part of the response message.
  • DELETE deletes a resource at a specified URI.

The API represents resources as hierarchical URIs to force the clients to use certain request sequences.

The reports API exposes the following methods:
