Teleport API Introduction

The Teleport Auth Service provides a gRPC API for remotely interacting with your cluster. In this section, we will show you how to use Teleport's API.

Go client

Teleport has a public Go client to programatically interact with the API. tsh and tctl use the same API.

Here is what you can do with the Go Client:

  • Integrate with external tools, e.g., to write an Access Request plugin. Teleport maintains Access Request plugins for tools like Slack, Jira, and Mattermost.
  • Perform CRUD actions on resources, such as roles, authentication connectors, and provisioning tokens.
  • Dynamically configure Teleport.
