RESTful APIedit

This documentation applies to the Elastic Cloud Enterprise API only. If you are using Elasticsearch Service, check the Elastic Cloud API information instead.

A RESTful API is available with Elastic Cloud Enterprise to create and manage both your Elastic Stack deployments and the ECE platform:

  • Authentication - How to authenticate when using the API endpoints.
  • API calls - The API protocols and request methods.
  • Accessing the API - Access the API using the Elastic’s ecctl CLI, curl, a standard client application, Terraform provider, or you can build your own custom client.
  • API Examples - Examples to get you started on your own automation journey.
  • API Reference - Our OpenAPI-sourced reference content. Covers everything we support at a glance.
