Project Life Cycle

The Admin Command Line Interface (CLI) provides command-line access to the Admin API. it is appropriate for scripted API creation, such as life cycle management services to promote a dev project to production.

Use the Admin CLI to:

  • Script a life cycle operation. For example, you can script moving a system from development to productionYou can access the Admin database using admin RESTful API.
  • Script the API-to-API server deployment from source control artifacts. For example, you can save development artifacts and export admin contents into a file for maintenance into a source control system (such as the export artifact).
  • Script the creation of APIs into an API server into a production system.
