NSX REST API Overview

NSX comes complete with a REST API that can be easily consumed from command line and scripting tools in addition to full-scale custom coding solutions.  This makes it accessible from other VMware technologies, such as vRealize Automation, and vRealize Orchestrator, as well as to PowerShell scripting and shell scripting (via curl, for example).  It is also possible to write custom code solutions that integrate NSX configuration modifications via the REST API into consistent workflows that accomplish work on behalf of system administrators and end users for the purposes of automatically, consistently, and securely configuring the network.

NSX Executive Overview

NSX is a software-defined, network virtualization technology that enables the decoupling of networks from hardware in much the same manner that server virtualization did for operating systems and hardware.
