Web Call Server uses two URLs for REST API
To invoke the REST API, you have to make request using the following format:
- Protocol: HTTP or HTTPS
- Content Type: application/json
- Method: POST
- Body: JSON
By default, server accepts REST HTTP requests on 8081 TCP port and REST HTTPS requests on 8444 TCP port. Those values are defined with the following settings in flashphoner.properties file
In WebCallServer previous versions, the manager module handles REST queries on 9091 and 8888 ports respectively. For existing web applications to work after server update, the following parameters are provided in wcs-manager.properties file
REST API requests are handled without user authorization by default. HTTP basic authorization may be enabled with the following parameter in flashphoner.properties file if necessary
When authorization is enabled, REST API users are managed from WCS core CLI.
Cross-domain request are managed with the following settings in flashphoner.properties file
By default, cross-domain requests from any address are allowed, to make port redirection work.
For testing purpose you can use a REST client. I.e. Advanced REST Console for browser Google Chrome.
