API Platform Cloud Service REST API scripts and REPL using Python by Shreenidhi Raghuram



This blog introduces a few useful Python scripts written to repeatedly perform common administrative tasks and development operations on an API Platform Cloud Service instance.

The scripts are written in Python and can be executed on all Python 3.6+ supported platforms


These scripts are written keeping in mind a few real life use cases, such as –

  • Migration of API Platform artifacts between different API server environments
  • Export of API Platform artifacts for source control

The scripts require familiarity with API Platform Cloud Service. Knowledge of Python programming language is not essential to execute the scripts and the interactive REPL, but will come in handy to customize or extend the functionality of the scripts to suite any specific needs.


The scripts require Python version 3.6+ and ‘requests’ and ‘tabulate’ modules installed.

The API Platform Cloud Service (APIPCS) REST API documentation is available here http://docs.oracle.com/en/cloud/paas/api-platform-cloud

The python scripts zip pack can be downloaded FROM here.

Extract the zip archive. All python scripts are found within the apip-rest-python directory.

Usage information: Use ‘—help’ to get the usage of every script

For example, python listapis.py –help. Read the complete article here.
