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:
Generate a new secure API token by selecting Settings > API from the main navigation header.
The API Key Management page shows you all of the existing API keys. To add a new API key, select + New API key.
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.
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.
