What is an API?
An API (Application Programming Interface) provides a means to share elements from one system to another in a secure way. APIs allow developers to save time by taking advantage of an existing platform’s implementation to power a third party system.
In the context of AudioSalad, our API lets us securely share metadata, media assets, and more with third-party systems.
Who uses the AudioSalad API?
The AudioSalad API is used by AudioSalad clients and some third-party services where they need access to data and assets under management in AudioSalad. Examples of this include using the API to power third-party front end systems, third-party reporting on analytical systems, and various bespoke applications.
How do we work with the AudioSalad API?
Working with APIs in general requires some technical expertise and knowledge of software development. You may need assistance in building a system that uses the AudioSalad API. We would be happy to discuss any use cases and help define what will be required for your project.
Is the AudioSalad API RESTful?
Yes, the AudioSalad API is a REST (Representational State Transfer) API.
Is the AudioSalad API Rate Limited?
The AudioSalad API is not rate limited at present however usage is monitored. Third party systems must operate with our guidelines to avoid rate limiting restrictions.
How long does it take to set up the AudioSalad API?
The AudioSalad API can be enabled for all AudioSalad clients, once an AudioSalad account has been set up. It will take some time to build an integration with the AudioSalad API, as well as perform necessary testing and production launch. We can help you determine an accurate timeline for your full project deployment.
