Commander has an API that uses standard HTTP methods (GET, POST, PATCH, DELETE). You can use any REST client to communicate with the Commander REST service.
The Commander API offers features such as:
- A simple and easy-to-use structure
- Pagination on all multiple return calls
- Detailed response messages
- Interactive documentation
This API is under active development, and more functionality is being added with each product release. For information on how to get started with the Commander API, see Get Started.
Note: Commander also has a Commander Legacy API, which consumes and produces XML documents through standard HTTP methods. Although the Commander Legacy API is still supported, all new feature development is being done for the Commander API. Note that Commander only provides a PowerShell client for the Commander Legacy API.
