Manager+Agents API

Manager+Agents installation 13.1 and higher provides a REST API to allow integration with custom applications or clients. Signiant Manager+Agents receives updated and improved REST API updates as part of its regular release schedule.

To learn more about Manager+Agents integration, see the getting started guide.

Version 14.0

Version 14.0 includes enhancements to Manager job scaling and reliability previously available as opt-in options as the default configuration. This includes overall capacity improvements for creating jobs using the REST API. For more information, see Environment Optimization.

Version 13.5

Version 13.5 includes opt-in enhancements to Manager job scaling and reliability, including increased capacity for creating jobs using the REST API.

Prior to 13.5, jobs relied on custom integrations to manage loads, and jobs would occasionally fail due to lack of available resources in the REST interface.

As of this version, the REST API queue uses a Token Bucket algorithm to balance requests against a set number of resource tokens as an opt-in enhancement.

You can now execute over 100 concurrent REST requests with minimal impact to overall performance by enabling the new feature.

Version 13.2

Version 13.2 supports REST API calls for job management and scheduling. Client programs can create, edit, delete, and schedule operations to run, cancel, suspend, and resume. All SOAP API job management calls are now available via the REST API.

Version 13.1

Version 13.1 includes support for REST REST calls for Jobs and Resource Controls. With this updated version of the REST API, your client programs can manage users, user groups, agent groups, job groups, jobs, channels, and resource controls.
