To start using the API
When getting started, we recommend you use the wsclient. This will help you work with the API and how it relates to your specific data.
After you download and unzip the folder, run the wsclient application. This will give you an easier view in to the calls and your data.
When running the application, select the webservices you want to work with from the URL drop-down. Your available selections are:
If you use the wsclient, be sure to select Force all calls to be https. This option is not selected by default.
We recommend you view the General webservices, even if your end goal involves Events. Also, this is where you will create the Token for the calls.
To create a token to use with calls
Click Create Proxy . This will return a list of calls.
Just like in the implementation of the webservices, to get a token you first need to call getLoginToken. These are invalid after an hour of inactivity and will need to be recreated.
You can now select other webservice calls, enter the data required in the yellow box, and click Call Web Service. Your results display on the Dataset results tab at the bottom of the page. This should help you work with the calls and as they apply to your data.
