The TiDB Cloud API is a REST interface that provides you with programmatic access to manage administrative objects within TiDB Cloud. Through this API, you can automatically and efficiently manage resources such as Projects, Clusters, Backups, and Restores.
The API has the following features:
- JSON entities. All entities are expressed in JSON.
- HTTPS-only. You can only access the API via HTTPS, ensuring all the data sent over the network is encrypted with TLS.
- Key-based access and digest authentication. Before you access TiDB Cloud API, you must generate an API key. All requests are authenticated through HTTP Digest Authentication, ensuring the API key is never sent over the network.
