General API Change Log Information

The focus of this release is:

  • Cookbooks and Repositories

About the RightScale API:

The RightScale API provides access to the RightScale resources through a well-defined REST interface. The RightScale API Reference Guide lists all of the available resources together with their fields and actions.

RightScale API Version Reference Doc Support Site Examples

RightScale API 1.5 View View

This release enhances API 1.5.

Added Resources (and associated MediaTypes):

  • Alerts

  • CookbookAttachments

  • Cookbooks

  • Repositories

  • RepositoryAssets

  • RightScripts

  • RunnableBindings

Modified Resources:


  • index - added with_inherited flag, added ability to filter on an Instance

NoteThis flag allows you to filter on a server or instance. Since servers or instances inherit from the ServerTemplate definition, they usually don't have alert_specs set. In those cases, if you do not specify with_inherited, you'll get an empty array. If you specify with_inherited=true, RightScale will return all the alert_specs that were defined on the ServerTemplate and inherited by the server with this flag.


  • create - added ability to allow an Instance in the alert_spec[subject_href] field

  • Allow instance-facing API access to all actions on this resource 


  • create - added user_email parameter for instance-facing API calls only

  • update - added offset parameter

  • Allow instance-facing API access to the create, update, and append actions


  • Added actions: create, destroy. See the Networks resource.


  • create - added ability to create rules with "egress" for direction param


  • Added actions: resolve, detect_changes_in_head, swap_repository. See the ServerTemplates resource.


  • Added actions: create, destroy. See the Subnets resource.
