API Usage Examples

The following API usage examples make use of the following generated API key: UjlMS+0m1l9IUZjpjWyJG8gbnv2Mta4T.

C# Example

In the following example, we will create a company using C#.

/** This example makes use of the json-rpc-csharp project:
 *  https://github.com/adamashton/json-rpc-csharp
 *

/String apiURL =
  "https://cloud.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/";

// Make a request on the companies API.
Client rpcClient = new Client(apiURL + "companies");
String apiKey = "UjlMS+0m1l9IUZjpjWyJG8gbnv2Mta4T";
String userPassString = apiKey + ":";
String authorizationHeader = System.Convert.ToBase64String(
  System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(userPassString));

rpcClient.Headers.Add("Authorization",
  "Basic " + authorizationHeader);

JToken parameters = new JObject();
parameters["type"] = 1;
parameters["name"] = "Test Company";
parameters["address"] = @"23rd Fictional Street,
  Hidden Town, Invisible Land";
parameters["phone"] = "+99000000000";
parameters["canBeManagedByAbove"] = true;

Request request = rpcClient.NewRequest(
  "createCompany", parameters);

Response response = rpcClient.Rpc(request);

if (response.Result != null) {
    JToken result = response.Result;
    Console.WriteLine(response.ToString());
}

// Output:
// 54b646a0b1a43dbd197b23c6    

curl Example

In the following example, we get information about all our managed companies using curl.

curl -i \
-H "Authorization: \
Basic VWpsTVMrMG0xbDlJVVpqcGpXeUpHOGdibnYyTXRhNFQ6" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-d '{"id": "123456789", "jsonrpc": "2.0",
"method": "getCompaniesList", "params": []}' \
-X POST \
https://cloud.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/network

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Wed, 10 Jan 2015 13:25:30 GMT
Content-Length: 103
Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8

{"id":"123456789","jsonrpc":"2.0","result":  
[{"id":"54b646a0b1a43dbd197b23c6","name":"Test Company"}]}    

Python Example

Now, we will request a list of endpoints.

For Python 2.7
#for non-EU
import base64
import requests
import json

apiKey = "UjlMS+0m1l9IUZjpjWyJG8gbnv2Mta4T"

encodedUserPassSequence = base64.b64encode(apiKey + ":")
authorizationHeader = "Basic " + encodedUserPassSequence

apiEndpoint_Url = "https://cloud.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/network/computers"

request = '{"params": {},"jsonrpc": "2.0","method": "getEndpointsList","id": "301f7b05-ec02-481b-9ed6-c07b97de2b7b"}'

result = requests.post(apiEndpoint_Url,data=request,verify=False,headers= {"Content-Type":"application/json","Authorization":authorizationHeader})

print(result.json())
#For non-EU
import base64
import requests
import json

apiKey = "UjlMS+0m1l9IUZjpjWyJG8gbnv2Mta4T"

encodedUserPassSequence = base64.b64encode(apiKey + ":")
authorizationHeader = "Basic " + encodedUserPassSequence

apiEndpoint_Url = "https://cloudgz.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/network/computers"

request = '{"params": {},"jsonrpc": "2.0","method": "getEndpointsList","id": "301f7b05-ec02-481b-9ed6-c07b97de2b7b"}'

result = requests.post(apiEndpoint_Url,data=request,verify=False,headers= {"Content-Type":"application/json","Authorization":authorizationHeader})

print(result.json())
For Python 3
#for non-EU
import base64
import requests
import json

apiKey = "UjlMS+0m1l9IUZjpjWyJG8gbnv2Mta4T"
loginString = apiKey + ":"
encodedBytes = base64.b64encode(loginString.encode())
encodedUserPassSequence = str(encodedBytes,'utf-8')
authorizationHeader = "Basic " + encodedUserPassSequence

apiEndpoint_Url = "https://cloud.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/network/computers"


request = '{"params": {},"jsonrpc": "2.0","method": "getEndpointsList","id": "301f7b05-ec02-481b-9ed6-c07b97de2b7b"}'

result = requests.post(apiEndpoint_Url,data=request,verify=False,headers= {"Content-Type":"application/json","Authorization":authorizationHeader})

print(result.json())
#for EU
import base64
import requests
import json

apiKey = "UjlMS+0m1l9IUZjpjWyJG8gbnv2Mta4T"
loginString = apiKey + ":"
encodedBytes = base64.b64encode(loginString.encode())
encodedUserPassSequence = str(encodedBytes,'utf-8')
authorizationHeader = "Basic " + encodedUserPassSequence

apiEndpoint_Url = "https://cloudgz.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api/v1.0/jsonrpc/network/computers"


request = '{"params": {},"jsonrpc": "2.0","method": "getEndpointsList","id": "301f7b05-ec02-481b-9ed6-c07b97de2b7b"}'

result = requests.post(apiEndpoint_Url,data=request,verify=False,headers= {"Content-Type":"application/json","Authorization":authorizationHeader})

print(result.json())

Node.js Example

In this example, we will make the exact previous call, only this time we will use Node.js

// Using the request module:
// npm install requestvar 
request = require('request');

request({  uri: "https://cloud.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/ \
    api/v1.0/jsonrpc/companies",
  method: "POST",
  headers: {
    'Authorization':
      "Basic VWpsTVMrMG0xbDlJVVpqcGpXeUpHOGdibnYyTXRhNFQ6"
  },
  json: {
    "id": "123456789",
    "jsonrpc": "2.0",
    "method": "getCompanyDetails",
    "params": [
  "companyId": "54b646a0b1a43dbd197b23c6"
 ]
  }
}, function(response, body) {
  console.log(body);});

// Output:

// { id: '123456789', jsonrpc: '2.0',
//  result: { 
//  id: '54b646a0b1a43dbd197b23c6',
//  isSuspended: False,
//   name: 'Test Company',
//  phone: '+9900000000',
//  address: '23rd Fictional Street, Fantasy City, Dream land',
//  canBeManagedByAbove: True,
//  type: 1} }    

PowerShell Example

This is an example PowerShell script. It provides the basics to make an API call to a GravityZone API endpoint.

Note

We wrote the operations in this script explicitly for didactic purposes. Feel free to optimize them for your practical use cases, should you feel it necessary.

# Store the API token (change this to your API key)
# For details, refer to the "API Keys" section of this guide.

$api_key = 'UjlMS+0m1l9IUZjpjWyJG8gbnv2Mta4T'

# build the login string (pass is an empty string)

$user = $api_key
$pass = ""
$login = $user + ":" + $pass

# encode the login string to base64

$bytes= [System.Text.Encoding]::UTF8.GetBytes($login)
$encodedlogin=[Convert]::ToBase64String($bytes)

# prepend "Basic " to the encoded login string to obtain
# the auth header

$authheader = "Basic " + 
$encodedlogin

# Replace the base_uri string with the correct one# for your console

$base_uri = "https://cloud.gravityzone.bitdefender.com/api"

# Replace the api_endpoint string with the correct one for

# All required resources are now set.
# You have two options to make the API call.
# First option:

# Invoke-RestMethod with it.

$params = @{
    Uri         = $request_uri
    Headers     = @{
   'Authorization' = "$authheader"
  'Content-Type' = "application/json"
 }
    Method      = 'POST'
    Body        = $request_data
    ContentType = 'application/json'}

$response = Invoke-RestMethod @params

# Second option:
# Build the headers structure, but specify the
# Invoke-RestMethod parameters inline.

$headers = New-Object `
"System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]"
$headers.Add("Authorization",
$authheader)
$headers.Add("Content-Type","application/json")

$response2 = Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $request_uri `
