Automate provisioning, configuration, & management of Dedicated clusters - Cluster Management APIs are now available for Dedicated clusters, alongside previous availability for Basic for Standard clusters. Operations now exist to list, create, read, update, and delete any cluster within your environments. You can manage clusters in a simple, scalable, and cost-effective manner while saving time for focus on other value-add projects. Like other Confluent Cloud APIs, these APIs have predictable resource-oriented URLs, transport data using JSON, and use standard HTTP verbs, response codes, authentication, and design principles.
