Application Programming Interface (API) are frameworks that allow applications to interact with each other. Here’s what each term means:
Applications are software with different functions. For example:
- Tovuti and its LMS functionality
- Zoom and its video chat functionality
- Workday and its user management software
- And countless more
The application provides code and documentation for developers.
Developers use the code and documentation to set up bridges between unique applications. These bridges allow the applications to share data and trigger actions.
For example, a developer can set up a link between Tovuti and Workday using both applications’ APIs.
Tovuti API Tools
Tovuti has many tools and resources to help developers set up connections with other applications. They include:
Tovuti API Open Documentation
As mentioned above, developers have access to documentation that allows them to build API connections between Tovuti and other applications.
Webhook integrations through Zapier
Webhooks are events that trigger data exchanges between applications. Tovuti’s webhook platform of choice is Zapier. Tovuti has numerous “triggers” and “actions” already created for easy application on Zapier.
The API Release History contains a comprehensive history of all updates and new endpoints created for the API.
