message format for request and response messages. They employ client-server communication in the form of HTTP requests and responses. The API client (that is, your program) uses the HTTP protocol to make an API request to the NetBackup server. The NetBackup server processes the request. The server responds to the client with an appropriate HTTP status code indicating either success or failure. The client then extracts the required information from the server’s response. Note: The NetBackup APIs are not supported on environments where NetBackup Access Control (NBAC) is enabled. NetBackup 8.1.2 includes the following APIs: NetBackup Authentication API Provides authentication by means of a JSON Web Token (JWT) that is used when making the API requests. The JWT is acquired by executing a login API request and can be invalidated by executing a logout API request. 12 New features, enhancements, and changes NetBackup 8.1.2 new features, changes, and enhancements
