General API

The general API is designed to be able to get, list, update, create and delete data entries in the system. It can be used to automate processes like vendor management or design creation.

General message structure

Communication is done by sending JSON data back and forth. In order to start an action, please send a POST request with the following JSON data in the HTTP body:

  "accessType": 1,         // Access type
  "action":     "...",     // Action to perform  
  "model":      "...",     // Model to perform the action to  
  "lang":       1|2|3|..., // Language (optional)  
  "kmd":        "...",     // Authentication token (optional/required depending on context)  
  "key":        "..."      // Your API-Key (optional/required depending on context)
  // other fields might be required depending on context

The content of the JSON data may vary depending on the action to be performed. Therefore please see the Actions section here.

Depending on the project implementation a key might be required for certain actions (e.g. creating a new user). Please get in touch with your account manager in order to receive your key.

Important: Keep your key private and do not transmit it via the browser but always via server-to-server connection!

The API will respond with a JSON body that is formated as follows:

  "status":     "...",  // Status: Success|Error 
  "statuscode": 0..999, // Status code
  "msg":        "...",  // Human readable status message
  "model":      "...",  // Context dependend. May return model type to be displayed or null
  "action":     "...",  // Action performed
  "data":        ...    // Type and content is depended on context  

Error codes

The API will use the following error codes in order to signal problems. The error code is send via the statuscode property of the response.

Access Types

Depending on the API structure different access types exist (JSON field "accessType"). Please get in touch with your accout manager in order to recieve the ID for the access type you can use.


Depending on the project and your access rights, you may see different models (data structures to be received/inserted from/into the database). Please call action rights in order to receive a list of models and actions.
