REST APIs

Note:

This article covers the REST APIs for XenMobile Server 10.9. For the REST APIs for Endpoint Management, see REST APIs.

With the XenMobile REST API, you can call services that are exposed through the XenMobile console. You can call REST services by using any REST client. The API does not require you to sign on to the XenMobile console to call the services.

For the complete current set of available APIs, download the XenMobile Public API for REST Services PDF.
