iControl REST API introduction


I've written a guide on how to get started with the F5 REST API. There's plenty of official F5 guides out there, but I tried to make this one a bit more distilled and base it on some lessons that I learned over the year when working on BigIP Report and my contributions to the indeni monitoring repository.


  • Reading configuration from the REST API
  • Changing configuration via the REST API
  • Some performance considerations
  • Some common issues
  • What to do when the API documentation is insufficient

It's a work in progress so feedback is much appreciated. Hope it helps someone!
