Issue/Introduction

Question on what the REST API does.

Environment

Release : 14.0

Component : CA Vantage Storage Resource Manager

Resolution

This interface allows calls from a user-written app to obtain data from Vantage. No need to install the feature unless you have a request to let users get data from Vantage. It does require updates to your MVS security system to allow users to make the call.

We have a nice video overview of the API via the following link:
