Our API (Application Programming Interface) for data exchange is an interface that enables various software applications to communicate with eyepin platforms and exchange data. It defines a set of rules, protocols, and methods that allow developers to access predefined functions or data in an application or service without needing to understand the internal structure or workings of that application in detail.
Here are some ways our data exchange API can be utilized. Our API can be customized to suit your specific needs:
- Endpoints: APIs provide specific endpoints or URLs through which requests can be sent. Each endpoint represents a specific function or dataset.
- HTTP Methods: The most common methods are GET (for retrieving data), POST (for creating new data), PUT (for updating data), and DELETE (for deleting data).
- Data Format: Our API uses XML (eXtensible Markup Language) for data exchange, but data exchange via CSV is also possible.
- Authentication and Authorization: APIs often require authentication to ensure that only authorized applications can access the data. This can be done through API keys, tokens, or other methods.
- Rate Limiting: To ensure server stability, APIs can set limits on the number of requests that a specific application can send within a certain time period.
- Return Codes: The API returns status codes to indicate the success or failure of a request (e.g., 200 for success, 404 for Not Found, 500 for Server Error, etc.).
- Documentation: A good API provides comprehensive documentation that explains how the API can be used, which endpoints are available, what parameters are accepted, etc. A detailed documentation for the API can be found at docs.eyepin.com.
