Rackcorp has migrated many of its functionalities to work with REST API architecture to modernize and make easy the process to get data through HTTP protocol. Every month we are adding new services through REST API. It is important you follow us to get the last updates and the last version of our API.

API Information:

Current Version: v2.7


Before you start to create any code or connect through our API, you need to create an API Key access which allow your code makes HTTP request to our end and be authorized to get data from your services. We will explain how you add this API Key in your code.

URL to create your key in our portal:

Them, you click ADD, type a name for this new Key and a secret ( password ) and SAVE.

API Standards:

As described in some articles about REST API, there is no definitive standard patterns that all engineers should follow to create REST API for their app. In Rackcorp we keep things simple. The main structure for our REST API is the URL which follows the patters below:

version: v2.7

main URL:

object data: customers | dcs | network | api | dns | devices

URL format: data/+ID item

Example GET all data:

Example GET one Item: 

Bellow we add some code which you can use as example to implement your first REST API connection to our platform:

In this simple introduction to code REST API, we will use PHP and PYTHON programming language.


In the sample bellow we add a dummy API KEY and API SECRET. Please, change this data accordingly with your data


$version = 'v2.7';
$url = "". $version . "/customers";
$query = [];
$query['APIUUID'] = "";
$query['APISECRET'] = "";

$curl = curl_init($url);
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($query));
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

$response = curl_exec($curl);

if($response) {
return json_decode($response, true);

return false;


import json
import logging
import sys
import os
import glob
import re
from bson import json_util
from flask.helpers import make_response
from flask import request, jsonify

version = 'v2.7'
apiurl = ''+version+'/'+customers
setheaders = {
'content-type': 'application/json',
'User-Agent': 'Mozilla',
'jwt': jwt

data = {}
data['APIUUID'] = ''
data['APISECRET'] = ''

apiresp = None
apiresp = requests.get(self.apiurl+'/sessions/logout',data=self.rcdata,headers=setheaders)

As you can see in both example, the logic to connect through our API is quite simple. You just need the URL, the APIUUID and APISECRET been part of the object or array, and the variables which you pass through the API to build the query in out back-end.

Hope you get the basic understading how to use our REST API functionalities. Bellow you can find links with more advanced docs to use our API. Also, the complete list of REST API services (urls) explaining the query data and the expected response data for each situation.

REST API GibHub Docs:



Swagger is a suite of API developer tools from SmartBear Software and a former specification upon which the OpenAPI Specification is based. This platform displays in simple layout all REST API functions allowing you visualize what your code should expect as response for each call (GET, PUT, PUSH, DELETE).

You can see through this platform the schema for each function and also, the expected JSON format response. You can also make tests to connect through your services in our servers using your real APIUUID and APISECRET.

It is good for testing staging environments and make sure that your call will receive exactly what your code expects.
