ARMS Open API overview

Last Updated: Aug 10, 2018

An open API provides services over the HTTP interface at the underlying layer. When you call the open API SDK, an HTTP request is sent to the application gateway POP which then forwards the request to the backend server of ARMS for execution.

You can encapsulate parameters in each request. Each request corresponds to a method. The execution result is put into a response.

NOTE: Because the POP gateway provides services through the public network, the access to public network services is required to use API. Otherwise, a message indicating a service connection failure is displayed.
