Introduction to REST
The REST API is based on interactions with a web page; data is treated like a static web page:
- Add data by POSTing a web page
- Fetch data by GETing a web page
- Update data by PUTing a web page
- Partial updates supported by PATCHing a web page
- Delete data by DELETEing a web page
After receiving the request, the FortiAuthenticator API sends back an HTTP response code. These error codes are summarized in General API response codes.
