Welcome's open API extends the functionality of our Connectors, helping you push (and pull) content and data between systems — even your unique, homegrown tools. This public API is fully documented at developers.welcomesoftware.com. What you'll find with our API that is industry standard is that it is REST-based, JSON formatted, OAuth 2.0 compliant, and is fully supported with self-service client registration in the Welcome Platform. (You can also find the documentation to register your client in our knowledgebase here).
What is unique about Welcome's open API is:
- Provides several opportunities for in-app communication (ex. Comments and Error messages can be 'pushed' to the user interface).
- Comes with compatible webhooks which help integrators maintain a near real-time bi-directional data flow from beginning to end.
- Clear, concise, generic and reusable data models which can be shared between your other applications (ex. Images vs Articles)
