Any tool that is fluent in HTTP can communicate with the API simply by requesting the correct URI. The interface responds to different methods depending on the action required.
|GET||For simple retrieval of information, you should use the GET method. The information you request will be returned to you as a JSON object. Any request using the GET method is read-only and will not affect any of the objects you are querying.|
|DELETE||To destroy a resource, use the DELETE method. This will remove the specified object if it is found. If it is not found, the operation will return a response indicating that the object was not found.|
|PUT||To update the information about a resource, the PUT method is available. The PUT request contains all attributes that are to be updated for an object.|
|POST||To create a new object, your request should specify the POST method. The POST request includes all of the attributes necessary to create a new object. When you wish to create a new object, send a POST request to the target endpoint.|
