Public cloud services provide RESTful APIs.

Representational State Transfer (REST) allocates Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) to dispersed resources so that the resources can be located. Applications on clients use Unified Resource Locators (URLs) to obtain the resources.

Public cloud APIs use HTTPS as the transmission protocol. Requests/Responses are transmitted by using JSON messages.

The URL is in the following format: https://Endpoint/uri

Table 1 describes the parameters in a URL.

Table 1 Parameter description
