This explorer provides the list of APIs
available on the Firepower Management Center, and their
Authentication to the API Explorer
The REST API relies on the same authentication as the
Firepower Management Center. Each function in the REST API maps to
permissions in the Firepower Management Center.
You can log into the API Explorer using any account on the Firepower Management Center, but you will only be able to perform the functions for which the account has permissions. For more information on setting permissions for user roles, see the Firepower Management Center Configuration Guide.
The first time you connect to the API Explorer
you may receive an error that the connection is
not secure due to an invalid certificate. You will
need to add an exception in your browser to use
the certificate and accept the connection.

Setting the Domain
The REST API can perform functions globally, in
the default domain, or in specific domains.
Before You Begin
You must have a configured Firepower Management Center, an account with permissions to access the REST API in one or more domains configured on your FMC.
In the upper right, drop down the Domains menu and select the desired domain.
What to Do Next
Locate the desired resource and request type.
Obtaining Sample Code
You can use the Export Operation button in API Explorer to save the displayed method example as a Python or Perl script file to your local host. This script can be used to make that REST call, and can be integrated into your application. This is meant primarily as an educational and bootstrapping tool.
Python: The Python scripts require you to
install Python, available from
https://www.python.org/. Once you’ve installed
Python, you can run your script with python
script.py username password.
Perl: Using the Perl scripts requires some additional set-up—you
need five components:
Perl package, found at http://www.perl.org/
Bundle::CPAN, found at
REST::Client, found at
MIME::Base64, found at http://perldoc.perl.org/MIME/Base64.html
JSON, found at
