    Default REST API - Restart applications

    Hi there ... is the REST API available only for version 4.2?
    how can I restart an application on 4.0 or 4.1?


  2. #2



    The REST API is included with 4.2 whereas earlier 4.x versions required preview approval and installation. Information on How To Access Documentation for WSE API.

    The applications can be restarted individually using the following command:

    curl -X PUT --header 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' http://localhost:8087/v2/servers/_de.../applications/[APP-NAME]/actions/restart

    More information on restarting hosts with the JMX API.

    Best regards,

    I am trying to restart the live application using the REST API call:
    curl -X PUT -H 'Accept:application/json; charset=utf-8' -H "Content-type:application/json; charset=utf-8" -u "user:pass"
    The response I am getting is
    {"message":"The request requires user authentication","wowzaServer":"4.3.0","code":"401","success":false}
    I am using the same username and password as for login to Wowza Manager.
    Can anyone tell me what am I doing wrong?

    curl --digest -u "user:pass" -X ...
