This API provides various HTTP methods you can use to manage your NetStorage content. Communication uses the Edge network using a HTTP(S) client of your own design. The client could be a web-based browser or scripted tools integrated with your content management system so long as each request provides the required HTTP headers.

With it, you can perform operations such as uploading, deleting, and listing of content, thus providing you another option for interfacing with your NetStorage account. HTTPS with Transport Layer Security (TLS) can be used.

This API is intended to manage your NetStorage content, while other APIs are for configuration and delivery. Here's a short list to get you started:
