Using REST API calls, the IQ Server provides functionality to create and update applications, as well as retrieve values for policy violations.

These APIs have been designed for system-to-system functionality; however, examples are provided using the HTTP client cURL. Following along, you can initiate the described API REST request via the command line tool.

While most of our examples for using REST APIs demonstrate referencing components/packages in the Maven format, Sonatype IQ Server also supports several other formats. For more information, go to Referencing Package URL (purl) and Component Identifiers.

REST APIs are versioned. This document represents the most recent version. If you plan to use any of these, we highly recommend updating to the latest version of the IQ Server to ensure compatibility.

Consider taking appropriate measures to prevent security issues such as Injection and Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) when using the responses of the APIs.
