HTTP API Integration Kit in NAKIVO Backup & Replication

How it works

The NAKIVO API covers all NAKIVO Backup & Replication features and thus any task that you see in the product web interface. Use API integration to enhance your data protection management and align it with your business operations.


Here are a few examples of what you can achieve by integrating NAKIVO Backup & Replication with other solutions:
Uninterrupted data protection with no errors. Monitor repositories and hosts in real time to ensure that they have enough memory and other resources.
Time and effort savings. Automate provisioning, machine and backup decommissioning.
Faster recovery. Use advanced automation solutions to fully automate your data recovery process.

HTTP API allows you to better automate and manage your data protection activities using third-party solutions.


To trigger actions, HTTP APIs use the JSON data-interchange format. You can send requests in separate JSON-formatted files or include parameters directly into the request body. Check our API Reference Guide to learn more.
