Arista does a great job posting the Recommended Minimum EOS Release versions however it requires partner level access (the information I have found thus far). I would like to programmatically access this information and I was hoping that Arista might have this information in a RestFUL API or at a minimum a public web link? Any help is appreciated.


Thank you again,

Mike Cotrone

Hi Mike,

eAPI was introduced in EOS-4.12.0. If you require further information I encourage you to get in touch with your local Arista account team. They should be able to help with all the details about what you need in order to get access to more documentation on the website.

Also, check out episode 3 of ’Bits & Bytes’ ( for more on how you can access the eAPI documentation using a EOS/vEOS node.


Thank you for the reply and sorry I missed this Andrei. No .. I am well aware of the eAPI and my software uses it quite extensively. I am looking for an EOS Version API so I can query it to receive the latest EOS version. I ask this since this information is private behind the partner login. I would like to offer a check in my software to report to the user that their EOS version is not the latest. Please let me know if this makes sense and thank you once again.

Or simply is there a public facing web page that also displays the latest EOS versions? I am trying to avoid using a hard coded partner login via software to get this and since its only one record basically I won’t build a mirror server most likely.

Thank you :)

Hi Mike,

This is not yet available, but we are looking into offering something along the lines of what you described in the future – will update this thread as soon as something becomes available.

Thank you for your patience!
