is there an API REST to manage Wowza from my App remotely?

If yes, is this licensed with my server? Could I manage everything via API REST?

Best regards

Thank you for your interest in the REST API. Take a look at How to access documentation for Wowza Streaming Engine REST APIs. At the bottom of the article is information on how to can request to be part of the Preview Program.
