Simplestack provides an HTTP REST interface to run commands on a given hypervisor. Some informations must be sent for Simplestack to decide on which hypervisor it needs to connect and the auth keys.
This URL makes Simplestack to connect to a Xen hypervisor that has the address 10.0.0.1 as a master.
The username and password should be sent as a “token” identified as the x-simplestack-hypervisor-token header. The token is just a simple base64 encoded string of user:password.
An example with curl would be:
curl -H “x-simplestack-hypervisor-token:c2ltcGxlc3RhY2s6c2ltcGxlUDRzNXcwckQ=” http://simplestack.mycompany.com/xen/10.0.0.1/guests
Where x-simplestack-hypervisor-token is a base64 encoded string for the user and password: simplestack:simpleP4s5w0rD.
