Runtime 2019.5 The xUML Runtime provides a REST interface to the controller service of each xUML service. Many service related resources can be accessed via this interface.

The requests come in via the control port of the service. The xUML Runtime API cannot be disabled.

Bridges as of  Bridge 7.5.0 provide an OpenAPI 2.0 Specification of the controller service for documentation and testing purposes. Via a link on the xUML service page, you can access a REST service documentation page where you can inspect the service interface and make HTTP calls on the service.
On the Bridge, go to the xUML service preferences page (see xUML Service Details for more information on how to do this).

On this page, you can inspect the Runtime API interface and make HTTP calls to the resources, similar to the Bridge API.
