The BindPlane API allows you manage your BindPlane environment programmatically. Designed with scaled environments in-mind, the API provides a method to manage a large number of Sources, Credentials, Collectors and Jobs.
You need an API Key to make secure requests to the BindPlane API.
Each API Key is associated with a BindPlane account and will have the same permissions as the account that generated it.
