Hi Zen Masters, today we bring an example about how to use our Zen Load Balancer API! This article presents the use of this API to get a farm list with the name, profile and status parameters of all created farms.
Zen Load Balancer API (ZAPI)
This ZAPI allows you to use the powerful Zen Load Balancer without the graphical user interface (GUI) through several commands using curl (a command line tool for getting or sending files using URL syntax).
If you want to use this API, go to ‘Users’ section (in Zen GUI) and enable zapi user.
