maprcli and REST API Syntax
This section provides information about the MapR command API. Most commands can be run on the command-line interface (CLI), or by making REST requests programmatically or in a browser.
To run CLI commands, use an ssh connection to any node in the cluster. To use the REST interface, make HTTP requests to a node that is running the WebServer service. For information about the permissions required to run each API, see User Permission Requirements by API.
