Developers of network management and third party applications can use this interface to, among other things:

  • Configure AlliedWare Plus devices
  • View their configurations
  • Query the devices’ environmental state
  • View information the devices have learned from the network
  • Transfer files to/from the devices
  • Upgrade devices' firmware
  • Reboot devices
  • Retrieve audit information from devices

Accessing the API

The API is simple and easy to use and can be accessed from any web browser or programmatically from an application that is being developed.

The API provides an XML definition of all the endpoints that it exposes, this is both device and version specific. This definition can be retrieved by pointing your browser to: https://<ip address>/api.xml.

You will be prompted for a username and password. The username and password you provide in response to this prompt must be those of a user account that the target device can authenticate, either by its own internal user database, or (if configured) via a RADIUS or TACACS+ server. The default user account on Allied Telesis devices is manager:friend.
