Entity relation diagrams and common flow samples

This section provides entity relationship diagrams and descriptions about how the entities relate to each other.

Note: Some resources are a technical preview. Until made public, send an HPECLIENTTYPE header with the value: HPE_REST_API_TECH_PREVIEW in your requests to try out the flows.

The entity relationship diagrams are based on end-to-end flows for working with the REST API. Each flow includes:

For demonstration purposes, the flows and entity relationship diagrams include both public and non-public (technical preview) resources.

For a list of public, supported resources, see the ALM Octane Developer Guide.

Other resources are a technical preview, and subject to change until declared public.
