The REST API is a programming interface based on the paradigms and behaviors of the World Wide Web (WWW). It has reached the status of an industry standard and is used by providers such as AWS, VMware, Azure and many cloud providers. Kentix systems thus offer completely new integration possibilities and a huge expansion of possible uses in digital business models and cloud solutions. The use of the Kentix REST API is free of charge.
In addition to the API query via HTTP POST request using JSON objects, so called webhooks are available for the most important system events such as alarms, bookings, and system messages. Webhooks are server-based events for the immediate transmission of events. The special feature is that these are arbitrarily configurable and independent of the data model. They can be JSON or XML based. The webhooks are simply created via the web GUI of the respective devices.
