Remotix HTTP API

Starting with version 6.2.5, Remotix supports HTTP API for automating of most common routine tasks. This helps make things like regular password change on a bunch of remote computers much easier.

HTTP API is disabled by default and has to be enabled in Remotix settings.

Sample Python scripts to work with API can be downloaded here.

HTTP API uses JSON encoding in requests and responses. In case of the success, HTTP 200 OK is returned. In case of error, HTTP status codes of 4xx are returned.

Here is the list of commands to be performed via API:

Working with groups:

Get a list of groups:

GET /groups

Get a list of items in the group:

GET /group/<group_uid>

Get the list of the connections in NEARBY pane:

GET /nearby

Create group:

PUT /group/


{ name: "New name" }


{ group_uid: "0123-CDEF" }

Update the name of the existing group:

PUT /group/<group_uid>


{ name: "New name" }

Delete a group:

DELETE /group/<uid>

Working with connections:

Create a single connection:

PUT /connection/


{ name: "New connection name", category_uid: "0123-CDEF" }


{ uid: "4567-89AB" }

Update an existing connection:

PUT /connection/<uid>


{ name: "New connection name", category_uid: "0123-CDEF" }

Update a connection's credentials:

PUT /connection/<uid>/credentials


NEAR: { "rxp.username": "new_username", "rxp.password": "new_password" } 
RDP: { "rdp.username": "new_username", "rdp.password": "new_password", "rdp.domain": "new_domain" } 
Apple Screen Sharing: { "apple.username": "new_username", "apple.password": "new_password", }

Delete a single connection:

DELETE /connection/<uid>

Delete connection credentials:

DELETE /connection/<uid>/credentials

Working with cloud computers:

Get the main settings of a cloud computer

GET /computer/<computer_id>

Get a list of actions available for a given cloud computer

GET /computer/<computer_id>/actions

Get a list of configured connections for a given cloud computer:

GET /computer/<computer_id>/connections

Get settings of a specific connection of the cloud computer:

GET /computer/<computer_id>/<connection_type>[_<port>]


GET /computer/123456/VNC

GET /computer/123456/RDP_3390

GET /computer/123456/NEAR

Get credentials of one of the connections of cloud computer:

GET /computer/<computer_id>/<connection_type>[_<port>]/credentials

Update a cloud computer’s main settings (name + groups it belongs to):

PUT /computer/<computer_id>


{ name: "New computer name", category_uid: "0123-CDEF" }

Update cloud computer connection:

PUT /computer/<computer_id>/<connection_type>[_<port>]


{ key: <value> }

Note that only specified fields are overridden. To delete the corresponding field (and effectively set it to the default value) use 'null' as value.

Delete a cloud computer:

DELETE /computer/<computer_id>

Note: this will remove the computer from your Hub and remove you as a user from a Trusted Users list on this computer.

Delete computer's connection settings:

DELETE /computer/<computer_id>/<connection_type>[_<port>]

Delete computer's connection credentials:

DELETE /computer/<computer_id>/<connection_type>[_<port>]/credentials


Initiate connect to an existing connection:

ACTION /connection/<uid>/connect

Initiate connect to a remote cloud computer:

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/<connection_type>[_<port>]/<action>

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/chat

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/NEAR/control

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/NEAR/curtain

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/NEAR/observe

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/NEAR/ft

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/VNC[_<port>]/control

ACTION /computer/<computer_id>/RDP[_<port>]/control
