The About Service API is a REpresentational State Transfer (REST) web service that contains a number of paths (also referred to as endpoints) that are used to execute various functions. To communicate with these paths, HTTP calls that contain GET requests are made.
The content sent to and received from the paths is formatted as JSON structures. For example, if a GET request is submitted to the /api/about/v1/components path, the user receives a list of all components in the system formatted as a JSON structure.
