Create Request

To interact with BirdSystem's API you'll need both api_key and company_id, both are mandatory in all cases.


Get API Key

To create an API KEY please log on the Client web interface (http://test.birdsystem.com/client) first with your given username and password.

Go to Settings → User

Double click the record line or click  icon to open the detail view window.

If there no existing API Key you'll need to click the 'Generate a new key' button to create one.

Once the API Key is generated, you need to add api_key HTTP Header with according value in your RESTFul requests.

 



Get company_id

Visit the URL http://test.birdsystem.com/client/public/company-list to get a list of companies , alternatively you can use your preferred RESTFul tools to get the list.

Create Request (POST)

You can submit your POST request either in HTTP Form format or JSON format.

JSON Format

Please note the in the above example we used an existed username so the server prompted error message, this is to demonstrate how server would response errors:

  • A 500 HTTP status code would be returned
  • Server will return "success":false in the returned JSON
  • A detailed explanation message is returned.
