Requesting version information

You can request the version of the REST interface for the Web Gateway appliance where you are currently working, as well as the version of the standard user interface.
You can request both versions at once or each version separately.

Requesting the interface versions

To request version information, use the version parameter. When used without further specification, the response to this request is a feed with the version numbers of both interfaces in XML format.

Sample commands: curl -i -b cookies.txt .X GET "$REST/version"

 Request parameters: None

curl -i -b cookies.text .X GET "$REST/version/mwg-ui"
