Overview

The interactive Armor API tool, powered by Swagger, is a cloud-based tool used to build, deploy, and document APIs. You can use this tool to review the API calls, as well as implement the calls. 

The interactive Armor API is divided into the following six sections: 

  • Account Management
  • Infrastructure
  • Authentication
  • Security
  • Network Services
  • Support

Access the interactive Armor API

To access the interactive Armor API, you must use your AMP login information to retrieve authorization keys.

    • This will display the access_token
  16. Under Response Body, copy the access_token
  17. Scroll up, and then in the Authorization field, enter FH-AUTH, followed by the copied access_token
    • A typical authorization credential should display as FH-AUTH afecb1543c3de8654.

Add input parameters to Put, Post, Delete, and Get API calls 

This section only applies to API calls that require input parameters.

Although the button to execute the call is displayed as Try it out!, the interactive Armor API guide is a live version of the Armor API. These calls will cause real-time changes to your environment.

  2. On the right, under Data Type, click Example Value.
  3. Click the yellow field below Example Value.

  4. On the left, in the field under Value, remove the sample code, and then make your desired changes. 
  5. In Parameter content type, select application/json
  6. Click Try it out! 
    • The fields below will populate with your changes, including the expected results. You can copy these fields and paste the information into the command line.
