The cloud API service provides the ability to automate management of IP addresses and DNS records so your cloud environment can take full advantage of IPAM, DNS, and DHCP capabilities in NIOS without the need for manual intervention. This service is supported for the following scenarios:

  • Communication between the cloud adapter (acting as an API client) and the Cloud Platform Appliance or between Cloud Platform Appliances. This cloud API service accepts and processes a subset of the WAPI requests that are currently supported on the Grid Master either directly from an adapter or proxied through another Cloud Platform Appliance or from the Grid Master.
  • Communication between the cloud adapter and the Grid Master, or between Cloud Platform Appliances and the Grid Master. This cloud API service processes requests received directly from the cloud adapter or processes requests received by other Cloud Platform Grid members.
