Cloudera Manager API

The Cloudera Manager API provides configuration and service lifecycle management, service health information and metrics, and allows you to configure Cloudera Manager itself.

The Cloudera Manager API is served on the same host and port as the Cloudera Manager Admin Console, and does not require an extra process or extra configuration. The API supports HTTP Basic Authentication, accepting the same users and credentials as the Cloudera Manager Admin Console.

You can also access the Cloudera Manager Swagger API user interface from the Cloudera Manager Admin Console. Go to Support > API Explorer to open Swagger.
