Standards and conventions

The API is based on the following standards:

  • Names: Camel Case, such as GetTaskList
  • Date and time format: ISO 8601 (YYYY-MM-DD HH:MM:SS), in UTC (Universal Time Coordinated)

    Example: 2007-04-05T14:30:25 (implicitly interpreted as UTC without the explicit trailing Z).

  • Standard URL format: api/v1/URL

In addition, this topic uses the following conventions:

  • Parameters in examples appear in curly brackets as {xx} and should be replaced with an actual value. An example of a parameter is {server}, which should be replaced by the server name or IP address of the machine where Replicate is installed. For a list of parameters, see Parameters.

All examples in this chapter use cURL as the HTTP engine.

In terms of forward and backward compatibility of the Enterprise Manager REST API, the caller should expect future releases to add new optional request parameters and additional data items in responses.
