What is the OpenPath API
The OpenPath API (Application Programming Interface) accepts authenticated server request to available OpenPath server resources. The API connections are Restful, the security is token based and all connections must be made over SSL (Secured Sockets Layer).
How it Works
In order to use the OpenPath API you need to create at least one API Key in your organization's OpenPath Client Application.
- First you request a token by sending an API ID and API Key via a URL encoded form over SSL. OpenPath will then review the API ID and API Key for Authentication.
- If the API Key Authenticates, OpenPath will send back an Authentication Token that is valid for 30 minutes.
- Once you receive the token, you can make calls to the OpenPath resources with the Authentication in the header of your Restful requests.
