This section contains information for developers who want to extend or customize BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management by using the API and other tools. This section contains the following topics:

The BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management API empowers you to manage your cloud environment programatically. Many resources that are typically managed by administrators are also accessible through the API. You can use the API to enhance your BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management implementation in the following ways:

  • Customize BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management to fit the needs of your organization.
  • Extend the capabilities of BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.
  • Automate repetitive processes.
  • Create your own portal into BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management.


The API is a RESTful web service; that is, it conforms to the architectural principles of Representational State Transfer (REST). Its RESTful architecture features a straightforward, easy-to-use interface facilitated by standard HTTP request and response messages that carry JSON-format payloads. For more information, see RESTful API.

CLM Python SDK

The BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management Python-based Software Development Kit (SDK) provides a simple way to perform task-based API operations in BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management. You do not need to interact directly with the BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management RESTful API. Instead, the SDK provides Python bindings to the full RESTful API, enabling you to use a Python command-line, code, or scripts to complete BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management operations with a simplified syntax. For more information, see CLM Python SDK.


The BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management Amazon Web Services Software Development Kit (CLM AWS SDK) provides a normalized and homogenous interface to manage your Amazon Web Services cloud and other on-premise cloud providers, such as VMware. It also provides a normalized, and homogeneous API access to BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management stack and the AWS cloud. For more information, see CLM AWS SDK.
