Areas That Can be Accessed by the API

API commandlets are available for use with the following functional areas in Security Controls:

  • Patch scanning
  • Patch deployment
  • Credentials
  • Machine groups
  • Patch groups
  • Power state management

You can leverage existing configuration and workflow concepts in any of these areas within Security Controls. This means you can reference existing credentials, machine groups, templates, logging, etc. within your API commands. You can also use the API to add new credentials, templates and groups.

The commands that you issue from the API will interact the Security Controls user interface. The results of actions that you drive from the API will be visible in Security Controls. For example, if you initiate a patch deployment from the API, the deployment process can be monitored using Deployment Tracker.
