F5 Distributed Cloud App Infrastructure Protection (AIP) offers two types of APIs: Webhooks and REST API.
The Webhooks API pushes trigger-based alerts to a specific URL and/or URL and port, and allows Distributed Cloud AIP users to operationalize the alerts in near-real time.
The REST API allows the user to write queries to access Distributed Cloud AIP information about organization-specific information. For more information, see the API Documentation.
Distributed Cloud AIP Webhooks for Alerts
Webhooks allow Distributed Cloud AIP users to send trigger-based alerts to a specific URL and operationalize the alert data in near-real time. Distributed Cloud AIP sends alert details in JSON format through HTTPS Post.
Using the Alert Webhooks API requires:
- webhook network access (whitelisting)
- a third-party service – such as Zapier, webhooks.io, or IFTTT – to integrate Distributed Cloud AIP Alert Webhooks into your existing applications and workflows.
