Application Programming Interface - API

Section's API first approach means you can easily couple your Edge Compute Platform to your DevOps workflows. Integrate cache clears, data collection, monitoring and more with your development and operations cycles.

Talk to a Developer

Simple and efficient automation.

Section’s API allows you to automate Edge Compute Platform management actions and integrate Section’s configuration with your application code, further streamlining the development process.

Cache a specific URL or empty the entire cache with easy controls in Section's portal or your CMS. Use custom Varnish Cache ban expressions or our API for even more granular, flexible control over cache purging.

The Section API definition is provided in Swagger notation for ease of use. Once you've set it up, you can quickly repeat actions across many applications for additional scalability.

Achieve granular control over your Edge Compute Platform.

The Section API streamlines actions such as cache clear and allows you to build Section into your own application code for added control and scalability.

Section also provides you with the ability to test before deployment and immediately identify issues via log management and real-time metrics, meaning that you will be able to cache more content, scale faster, and block more threats than with any other solution.

Technical Details


Section has been built as an API-first solution so you have flexibility and control to drive your Edge Compute Platform the way you want.

Section’s API is described in the Section API Docs.

The Section API definition is provided in Swagger notation. Swagger is a specification and tool ecosystem for describing, producing, and consuming RESTful web services. You can find out more about Swagger here.
