RIPE Atlas APIs Manual
This is the manual for the RIPE Atlas Application Program Interfaces. It is meant as an introduction to using these APIs. For a more general introduction to RIPE Atlas itself, please see the RIPE Atlas website.
Separately from this manual we also have an API reference that lists all possible requests, query parameters and available fields.
You can also use RIPE Atlas through the web interface. You can view measurements and information about probes. If you create a RIPE NCC Access Account you will have a dashboard that allows you to create measurements, see your probe status and more.
If you want to make the most of this manual, you should first create a RIPE NCC Access Account if you don't already have one.
You can also download this manual as a pdf.
Most of our APIs are REST interfaces over HTTPS. They can be used to get information about measurements and probes, and can also be used to create measurements.
We also have a streaming API that continuously delivers new results as they are obtained by the probes using a long-lived HTTPS web-socket connection.
