What is the GWI API?
An Application Programming Interface (API) is a type of software which connects two or more different applications, allowing them to speak to each other. APIs provide greater flexibility, enabling you to pull data from one source to another, to use however you wish.
GWI has an API that does just this, enabling you to effortlessly access and leverage our data within your own environment. Connecting to our API can help you bring our data into the format that best suits you.
How to access it?
To connect to our API, you will need to follow these steps:
- Step 1: Get in touch with your Account Manager or Sales Rep to get access to your API Key
To access our API, you will first need to sign up for an account. Your Account Manager (AM) can provide you with pricing details. Once you have created your account, you will be given an API key that you can use to authenticate your requests to the API. Keep your API key safe and secure, as it's your access key to our data.
- Step 2: Read our API Documentation
Before you start using our API, we recommend that you read through the documentation to understand how it works and what endpoints are available. Our API documentation includes detailed descriptions of each endpoint, including the parameters that are accepted and the responses that are returned.
- Step 3: Build Your Integration
With your API key and the API documentation in hand, you can start building your integration. Depending on your programming language or platform, you can use one of our API client libraries, or build your own code to interact with the API. You can use our API to retrieve GWI data in different formats, or perform other actions such as creating audiences or getting curated content, depending on the permissions granted to your API key.
- Step 4: Test Your Integration
Before you put your integration into production, we recommend that you test it thoroughly to ensure that it is working as expected. Once you are satisfied with your integration, you can deploy it to your production environment and start using our API to access our data.
If you encounter any issues or have questions about integrating with our API, please don't hesitate to reach out to your AM or Sales Development representative for assistance.
