About the Oracle Container Cloud Service REST API

You can use the Oracle Container Cloud Service REST API to incorporate Oracle Container Cloud Service functionality into your web applications.

The Oracle Container Cloud Service REST API exposes Oracle Container Cloud Service functionality as HTTP methods to enable you to incorporate the functionality using Representational State Transfer (REST) requests and responses. REST offers a simple, light-weight API for applications that don’t require the server to maintain state information or message exchange. See Calling the Oracle Container Cloud Service REST API.

If you want to hold information in persistent storage, you can save keys and values in the Oracle Container Cloud Service Key/Value Store database for retrieval by calls to the Oracle Container Cloud Service REST API. See Adding Keys and Values to the Key/Value Store Database and Example REST API Calls to Access the Key/Value Store Database.

Some Oracle Container Cloud Service REST API methods (usually those performing PUT, POST, and DELETE operations) require authentication details in order to run, in the form of an API token. The API token uniquely identifies the SSO user associated with it. You can see and copy the API token associated with your SSO username on the My Profile page (see Changing and Viewing Profile Settings). Typically, you'll include the API token as the value of the Bearer token in the authorization header of a script calling a method that requires authentication. Note that a new API token value is generated if you change the value in the Username field on the My Profile page, so you’ll have to update any scripts that included the old API token.
