Over the last few months a new and improved API has been built out for the Turbonomic platform. This updated API adds numerous enhancements such as JSON response, dynamic documentation and full feature parity with the new user interface. Many of you have leveraged the existing API for an array of uses from pulling data to executing custom workflows.This updated API will allow you to do those things and more. This is an early, first version of the new API, so API calls and documentation are subject to change. It will be continuously updated and added to with each subsequent release. The API is now available in all Turbonomic instances running 5.6 and above.


To become familiar with the new API, simply type the below into the address bar -

For Turbonomic Versions 5.6 to 5.9.1: YOUR_IP_ADDRESS/vmturbo

For Turbonomic Versions 6.0 and above: YOUR_IP_ADDRESS/vmturbo/apidoc/


This will display a page that will ask for your login credentials (supporting both AD and local accounts). Once logged in, you can start to play with different API calls and reading through the support documentation.


Here's a peek:



Looking forward to everyone's feedback. Have fun!
