Getting Started with the Ridge API

Welcome to the Ridge developer API guide. This guide will explain the core concepts necessary for using Ridge resources

The Ridge API is a RESTFUL API that uses JSON encoding. All API requests must include a token in the header for authentication. The token is obtained using the Ridge console, and placed in the HTTP Authorization request header: Authorization: Bearer

API Conventions

Resources identifiers

Ridge resources can be identified by an unique Id, an identifier which is generated by Ridge and may not be modified

For example, describe a Kubernetes cluster:

GET https://api.ridge.co/rks/experimental/clusters/cluster/

Display Name

Each Ridge resource can have a displayname that is used only for display (UI) purpose. displayname may include up to 512 Unicode characters, include up to 64 lowercase latin letters, numbers or dashes.
