Server Information API

The APM Server exposes an API endpoint to query general server information. This lightweight endpoint is useful as a server up/down healthcheck.

Server Information endpoint

Send an HTTP GET request to the server information endpoint:

http(s)://{hostname}:{port}/

This endpoint always returns an HTTP 200.

If an API keys or Secret token is set, only requests including authentication will receive server details.

Set the Accept header set to text/plain to move the server information to the root level of the response, removing ok.

Example

Example server information request:

curl http://127.0.0.1:8200/

{
  "ok": {
    "build_date": "2018-07-27T18:49:58Z",
    "build_sha": "bc4d9a286a65b4283c2462404add86a26be61dca",
    "version": "7.0.0-alpha1"
  }
}
