API Question

API Question

API Question

(OP)
A friend of mine has asked me to take a look at these api's and how to use them to retrieve data.

Link

I haven't played around too much before with API's and JSON but how would one go about retrieving data from these.

Should there not be a URL that hosts this web service or API? The examples of that page just provide info of the data sent. No information on how to integrate the API's

Also, how would myprosperity know who is retrieving the data.

e.g. If my friend wants to pull just his clients, there must be some kind of authentication that happens surely?

Any tips/ideas?

Thanks
Andrew

RE: API Question

You are correct. There would be an authentication key you would have to pass in the header when calling one of the endpoints. I would suspect you first need to register with this company and they an authentication key would be given to you and also more information like the URL and how to access your data specifically. You will need to contact the company for more informaiton
