The Governance REST API is an API that is supported by WSO2 Governance Registry. The Governance REST API uses the GET, POST, PUT, and DELETE operations of the well-defined HTTP protocol to perform CRUD operations on the governance registry. You can use any REST client to send API requests, such as Google Chrome's Advanced REST client.



At the moment REST API only supports configurable governance artifacts and has limited support for Content artifacts such as WSDL and Policy.


The Governance REST API is secured with Basic Auth access token. You can invoke the rest API with Basic Auth header as follows:
Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4= where the format is Authorization: Basic {base64encoded(username:password)} 

You must send valid HTTP BasicAuth credentials when invoking the REST API as shown below.
