REST API Roadmap : Access to metrics in CF


#1

Are there any design discussions or blueprints to be able to consume Metrics via REST. This would assist in Cloudforms being the Control Plane consolidating the metrics from different providers and exposing them for external Integrations and Right Placements solutions

Hi @cheboluv,

Ultimately one of the goals of the REST API is to expose everything that can be seen in the UI. At that point the UI itself and even automate can use the REST API and they can be separated more cleanly. We haven’t discussed if metrics would be exposed specifically (as opposed to in aggregate, like reports), but I can see how that could be useful.

Right now, the priority focus of REST API additions is to at least get parity with the SOAP API, so we can remove it.
