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.
