In this training session we will introduce you to our API Developer Portal, a repository for all currently exposed API calls you and your team can use to push/pull your account data.
Accessing the API Portal
Our customer-facing API portal is available at https://dev.scout.systems. To enter you will need a separate email/password.
Requesting Account Creation
In order to be granted access to the API Portal, the Scout Systems team needs to create your API portal account (email/password/subscription). Please contact email@example.com to request account creation. In addition, our staff will request that you associate your API Portal access with a particular HQ User (created in HQ Admin > Users). If you've not already done so, please make sure that you have your HQ User account created prior to requesting API Portal access.
With your account created, click the green SIGN IN button. Enter your email address & password and hit 'Sign In'. You should now see a new green button called 'API Documentation'. Its here that you'll be provided with a list of our API versioning - you will most likely be looking for the latest version provided.
It should also be noted that having gained access to the API Portal, you can verify your 'Products' - noting your calls/min and calls/week limitations, as well as edit your account details within the 'Profile' tab.
It is also here in the Profile tab that you'll access your subscription's Primary/Secondary keys to be used in the call making process.
You are now able to access and discover all of the available API calls that we offer.
I stare at computer screens more than anything else, I get teased for my 3 monitors. At home me and my friends are overly obsessed with video games, especially Rocket League.
