The CAM REST API provides read-only access to CAM data via an HTTP-based RESTful API.

Use the CAM REST API to:
  • Get information about users, network devices, and computers and their properties.
  • Get information about purchasing and hardware and software assignments.

The REST API Discovery Tool (Swagger) provides comprehensive API documentation with an intuitive user interface that enables you to discover and test operations using your CAM data.

Use a web browser to open the REST API Discovery Tool using this URL:

The CAM REST API is provided with a standalone installation package that is included with CAM on-premises setup. For more information, see Install the CAM REST API.

For SaaS customers, the CAM REST API is installed on the hosted CAM server.
