Supported Microsoft Defender for Endpoint APIs

Applies to: Microsoft Defender for Endpoint

Endpoint URI and versioning

Endpoint URI

The service base URI is: https://api.securitycenter.microsoft.com

The queries based OData have the '/api' prefix. For example, to get Alerts you can send GET request to https://api.securitycenter.microsoft.com/api/alerts

Versioning

The API supports versioning.

The current version is V1.0.

To use a specific version, use this format: https://api.securitycenter.microsoft.com/api/{Version}. For example: https://api.securitycenter.microsoft.com/api/v1.0/alerts

If you don't specify any version (e.g. https://api.securitycenter.microsoft.com/api/alerts ) you will get to the latest version.

Note

If you are a US Government customer, please use the URIs listed in Microsoft Defender for Endpoint for US Government customers.

Tip

For better performance, you can use server closer to your geo location:

  • api-us.securitycenter.microsoft.com
  • api-eu.securitycenter.microsoft.com
  • api-uk.securitycenter.microsoft.com

Learn more about the individual supported entities where you can run API calls to and details such as HTTP request values, request headers and expected responses.
