Mapping of Edge Services Director GUI Workspaces with the REST API Services

RESTful Web Services are exposed under the Junos Space Edge Services Director root uniform resource indicator (URI). While you can use REST API calls to efficiently and easily configure, deploy, and administer a large number of services on service delivery gateways (SDGs), it is helpful to be familiar with the GUI workspaces and windows in the Edge Services Director interface that correspond to the different REST Web Services. Table 2 illustrates the different REST API services and their corresponding windows or pages in the Edge Services Director GUI:
