saltstack api

Using salt-api to integrate SaltStack with other services

Recently I have been looking for ways to allow external tools and services to perform corrective actions across my infrastructure automatically. As an example, I want to allow a monitoring tool to monitor my nginx availability and if for whatever reason nginx is down I want that monitoring tool/service to do something to fix it. While I was looking at how to implement this, I remembered that SaltStack has an API and that API can provide exactly the functionality I wanted.
