This topic describes the API operations that are available in Server Migration Center (SMC). If you are familiar with network service protocols and more than one programming language, we recommend that you use the SMC API to migrate source servers to Alibaba Cloud.


When you call the SMC API, note the limits on the number of migration sources that can be imported and the number of migration tasks that can be created or concurrently executed. For more information, see Limits. When API descriptions, optional parameter values, and available resources are not consistent with the limits, the limits take precedence.


SMC allows you to send HTTP or HTTPS requests by using the GET and POST methods. For more information, see Make API requests.

Alibaba Cloud provides a quick start guide for the SMC API. For more information, see Quick start. For more information about the SMC API, see API operations.
