Getting Started

The Performance Center Administration REST API enables you to write applications to manage performance test resources without using the Performance Center Administration user interface. This API provides only a subset of the functionality provided by the user interface.

This document does not define the terms used in the context of Performance Center. For details, see the Administration section in the Performance Center Help.

Before accessing any other resource, you must authenticate the user. See Authenticate.

Once the user is authenticated, you can:

Before your application closes, logout from the server.

Tip:  To write applications to create and run performance tests without using the Performance Center user interface, see the Performance Center REST API Reference Guide.
