UpCloud C# API client library

Build Status

This C# API client for the UpCloud API provides a web service interface using HTTPS. It allows extensively featured resource management on UpCloud's IaaS with easy to use functions. The API client follows the RESTful web service principles wherever possible.

The base URL for all API operations is https://api.upcloud.com/ and require basic authentication using UpCloud username and password. We recommend creating a subaccount dedicated for the API communication for security purposes. This allows you to restrict API access by servers, storages, and tags ensuring you will never accidentally affect critical systems.

Frameworks supported

  • .NET 4.0 or later
  • Windows Phone 7.1 (Mango)


The DLLs included in the package may not be the latest version. We recommend using [NuGet] (https://docs.nuget.org/consume/installing-nuget) to obtain the latest version of the packages:

Install-Package RestSharp
Install-Package Newtonsoft.Json

NOTE: RestSharp versions greater than 105.1.0 have a bug which causes file uploads to fail. See RestSharp#742


Run the following command to generate the DLL.

  • [Mac/Linux] /bin/sh build.sh
  • [Windows] build.bat

Then include the DLL (under the bin folder) in the C# project, and use the namespaces:

using Upcloud.Api;
using Upcloud.Client;
using Upcloud.Model;


A .nuspec is included with the project. You can follow the Nuget quickstart to create and publish packages.

This .nuspec uses placeholders from the .csproj, so build the .csproj directly:

nuget pack -Build -OutputDirectory out Upcloud.csproj

Then, publish to a local feed or other host and consume the new package via Nuget as usual.


using System;
using System.Diagnostics;
using Upcloud.Api;
using Upcloud.Client;
using Upcloud.Model;

namespace Example
    public class Example
        public void main()

            // Configure HTTP basic authorization: baseAuth
            Configuration.Default.Username = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("UPCLOUD_USERNAME");
            Configuration.Default.Password = Environment.GetEnvironmentVariable("UPCLOUD_PASSWORD");

            var apiInstance = new AccountApi();

                // Account information
                AccountResponse result = apiInstance.GetAccount();
            catch (Exception e)
                Debug.Print("Exception when calling AccountApi.GetAccount: " + e.Message );
