API keys

With the FortiMonitor API, you can achieve any level of automation from adding/deleting new instances, extracting data, starting a maintenance window to much more.

To start using the FortiMonitor API:

  1. Generate a new secure API token by selecting Settings > API from the main navigation header.

  2. The API Key Management page shows you all of the existing API keys. To add a new API key, select + New API key

  3. From the Add API Key modal, add a description and then select the roles (depending on your use cases) to assign to the API key. 

  4. Once you select Add API Key, a new API key will be created. 

Clicking on a token takes you into our API explorer so that you can visually interact with API before writing any code.
