REST API endpoints - Adaptive Applications - BlueCat Gateway - 22.1.1

Cloud Discovery & Visibility Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Gateway
Cloud Discovery & Visibility includes REST APIs to retrieve information and configure the Adaptive Application. This workflow uses three main HTTP methods for interacting with different objects:
HTTP Method Description
GET Retrieve data
POST Upload data
DELETE Delete data


When working with the workflow of this API, you can invoke different methods by appending the API endpoint to the BlueCat Gateway URL. For example, the following GET API call retrieves a list of all configured discovery jobs in AWS, Azure, or GCP.
GET http://<Gateway_url>/cloud-discovery/api/v1/provider/<aws_azure_or_gcp>/discovery


The Cloud Discovery & Visibility API endpoints require an authorization token to be passed in the header to successfully execute. For more information on the API that retrieves an authorization token, refer to the REST API Swagger documentation.
