Release Information

Statement introduced in Junos OS Release 12.3X48-D30.


Configure Web API (webapi) to facilitate efficient transmission of user authentication and identity information from the CPPM to the SRX Series device. The CPPM, which is the client in this relationship, initiates a session with the SRX Series device Web API process, which is the server in this relationship. However, the CPPM can do this only if you have configured the Web API function on the SRX Series device. For security reasons, the Web API process is not enabled by default.

The configuring statements are explained separately. See CLI Explorer.
