Connect Direct Web Services - API Method for Connect Direct Version

There is currently no API method available to retrieve or GET the Connect Direct Version using the REST API, although this is available the the CDWS Web Console (see attached image). Can this method be considered?

What is your industry? Banking
How will this idea be used?

It would be useful for retrieving version information for upgrades across multiple nodes with a simple API call.

    We have an existing REST API for CDWS Sign-on which is inline with the RFE.

    Rest API URL :


    Host name : Ip Address or host name of the server where CDWS was deployed. 9443 : Port number on which CDWs is running

    Request Payload :

    Here we need to send CD server details


    "ipAddress": "",

    "port": 1363,

    "protocol": "None"


    Protocol can be : None/TLS1.2/TLS1.3



    "messageCode": 200,

    "message": "Signon is successful",

    "version": "",

    "cdVersion": "",

    "nodeMachineName": "CDWDEV-007",

    "osType": "Windows",

    "nodeName": "CDWDEV-007"


    cdversion is the version of CD node.
