LifeMonitor API Specs

LifeMonitor (LM) exposes its functionalities through a RESTful API defined with OpenAPI.

  1. Generic Client: can manage a user’s workflows and associated workflow tests;

  2. Registry Client: can act on their users’ behalf and manage their users’ workflows and associated workflow tests. For instance, you may register a workflow on the Workflow Hub registry and it (as a Registry Client) may in turn register on your behalf the workflow’s tests with LifeMonitor.
