The JetPatch API enables developers to create client implementations that communicate directly with the JetPatch server to manage endpoints and their credentials, and to deploy and manage management services and managed agents.
Using the secure, RESTful JetPatch API, clients communicate over HTTPS to retrieve and manage resources representing endpoints, their credentials, management services, and endpoint tasks. Client implementations can be integrated with existing orchestration and configuration management system to optimize the provisioning, configuration and management of agents and other tools. For example:
A Chef recipe can invoke the JetPatch API to virtually deploy a monitoring agent to 20 newly-provisioned VMs
A cloud orchestration system such as vCAC (DynamicOps) can deploy the appropriate management tool portfolio to newly provisioned servers according to each endpoint's security class.
