API, CLI, and Setup


This page provides links to the API documentation, AWS Command Line Interface (CLI), and other setup topics.


New API Documentation Structure

CloudCheckr is revamping its API documentation to ensure that it reflects the best practices for REST and to improve overall consistency. We will restructure each call to include these sections:

Section Description
Input Parameters Options that you pass with the endpoint to influence a response.

Identifies if a parameter is required or optional, the data type, and the parameter description.

API Call URL Identifies the common path for the API (highlighted in yellow) and the end path of the endpoint (highlighted in light blue).

Request Example Includes a sample request that shows the endpoint and a few key parameters.

Formatted in curl since it’s language-agnostic.

Includes the header information and the method (GET or POST in most cases).

Response Example Shows a sample response for all of the parameters passed in the request example.

Includes examples in XML and JSON.
