The REST API Reference documentation describes all the available vRealize Automation REST API services calls that you can use to configure and manage vRealize Automation programmatically.

To use the vRealize Automation REST API service reference documentation effectively, you must know which service and resource to use. See Overview of the vRealize Automation REST API for a complete list of services and their descriptions. If you need more information, click one of the linked service topics for a detailed description of the service and a list of the tasks that you can perform with it.

While the Programming Guide contains frequently used use cases, it does not document all the available service calls and tasks. For a complete description of all the available vRealize Automation REST API services, see the REST API Reference, which is a collection of zipped resource files located on the VMware vRealize ™ Automation Documentation page at https://www.vmware.com/support/pubs/vcac-pubs.html.

The REST API Reference is available for viewing and can also be downloaded as a zip file. After you download the .zip file from the vRealize Automation Documentation page, you can unzip it and use the index.html file to display the vRealize Automation REST API service topics.
