How to Enable Kemp LoadMaster RESTful API interface

The LoadMaster provides an interface designed to allow remote applications access in a simple and consistent manner. The interface is a REST-like interface. REST (REpresentational State Transfer) is a style of software architecture for distributed systems and is one of the predominant web service design models.

The LoadMaster RESTful API works by allowing a user or application to pass HTTP requests to the LoadMaster. The LoadMaster answers the request with an XML-formatted response.

The interface is disabled by default.

To enable the RESTful API interface complete the following steps:

  1. Select the Certificates & Security > Remote Access menu option.
  2. Select the Enable API Interface checkbox.

For further details on the RESTful API, including details about the commands and parameters available, please refer to the RESTful API, Interface Description document.
