Oracle Enterprise Data Management Cloud Service provides a Representational State Transfer (REST) API to perform user tasks in an automated manner. REST API is an application-programming interface that provides a simplified way to exchange data through HTTP requests from a client to the server.

In REST APIs, a resource is an object with a type, associated data, and relationships to other resources. You can use a set of HTTP methods to access each resource. Resources are organized in a hierarchical structure that enables:
  • Better organization, by grouping related data so that you can efficiently customize the resources.
  • Improved performance, by using a single HTTP request to handle multiple resources.

Supported HTTP Methods

HTTP methods to create, update, and retrieve data.

HTTP Methods Descriptions
GET Retrieve a single or multiple records of the resource.
POST Create a resource or perform an operation.
DELETE Delete a REST API resource or related component
