USM Central offers a Representational State Transfer (REST) API framework that enables you to customize elements of data in your environment. The APIs return JSON responses with errors that use HTTP response codes. To access the API, you need to create a client identification (ID) and secret code in the USM Central interface, and use that information to create a token. USM Central uses Open Authorization (OAuth) 2.0 to authenticate against the REST APIs.
See the Affordable pricing to fit every budget page for more information about the features and support provided by each of the USM Anywhere editions.
