Next steps

Now that we have our instance up and running, the next step is to understand how to communicate with it. Fortunately, Snow Owl provides very comprehensive and powerful APIs to interact with your instance.


Among the few things that can be done with the API are as follows:

  • Perform CRUD (Create, Read, Update, and Delete) and search operations against your terminology resources

  • Execute advanced search operations such as paging, sorting, filtering, scripting, aggregations, and many others

  • Administer your instance data

  • Check your instance health, status, and statistics


Snow Owl is both a simple and complex product. We’ve so far learned the basics of what it is, how to look inside of it, and how to work with it using some of the available APIs. Hopefully, this tutorial has given you a better understanding of what Snow Owl is and more importantly, inspired you to further experiment with the rest of its great features!
