Data Transmission Service (DTS) allows you to send URL-based requests by using the HTTP or HTTPS GET method. You must add the request parameters that correspond to the API operation being called. After you call the API, the system returns a response.

Communication protocols

You can send requests by using the HTTP or HTTPS protocol. To enhance security, we recommend that you send requests over HTTPS.

Request methods

You can use the HTTP GET method to send requests. If you use this method, you must include request parameters in each request URL.

Request parameters

In each request, you must specify the operation to be performed. For example, to create a data migration instance, you must set the Action parameter to CreateMigrationJob. Request parameters include both common parameters and operation-specific parameters.

Character encoding

All requests and responses are encoded in UTF-8.
