API (Application Programming Interface)

An API  is a specification of supported interactions with a software component or resource. APIs make components reusable, and public APIs enable you to tap into functionality developed elsewhere over the web.

Turbonomic uses target APIs to discover applications, platforms, and infrastructure in your environment. The Turbonomic REST API exposes Turbonomic data and processing to remote access via HTTP.

Turbonomic documentation includes a REST API Guide to help you script interactions with the Turbonomic software and develop integrations between Turbonomic and other software applications.
