On 15th August 2017 we did a webinar with Ryan Darst about the automation and orchestration capabilities you can achieve with the R80.10 API.  Specifically, this session covered:

  • Introduction to using the R80.10 APIs using a variety of tools from Postman to Ansible
  • Tips on leveraging the API from both the R80.10 CLI and from the RESTful API to do simple tasks from adding objects and services to adding rules
  • Additional use cases for using other features in the R80 API from policy verification to running scripts on gateways
  • A demonstration of a complete Check Point cloud auto-scaling environment using Ansible and the R80.10 APIs
