Hi Danny,

Where can I find more details about this exam?

Like, the number of questions, allowed time, sample questions if possible?

I will set this exam for the 17th of August, and I need to get some info about it.

There isn't much out there as far as exam prep materials for the 2-day specialist classes which includes the CCAS.  If you go to pricelist.checkpoint.com you can buy an e-copy of the CCAS courseware for $400 USD.  Keep in mind the major focus of the class is the management API, other APIs such as the Threat Prevention API and the Identity Awareness API are only briefly mentioned.  Also the class (and therefore the exam) was written circa 2018, and as such covers the early version of the API (v1.2 and earlier if I had to guess).

When teaching the CCAS class here are some free additional resources I pull into the class and present to more fully flesh out the basic concepts presented in the courseware, these should help you prepare for the exam:

Management API Best Practices TechTalk and Q&A

Functionality - API vs. SmartConsole

Working With Postman

How-to use Postman with R8x Security Management API

Automate your R80 Management Server using Ansible

Thanks a lot for the useful links. I already studied the CCAS courseware. I just wanted to know any hints about the exam itself ( number of questions or allowed time, etc.)

And if it's going to cover API v1.2 only or up to the latest version?

some experience working with the API and the course material are enough to pass the exam
