API Overview

1 minute read

The ServiceChannel API is a RESTful and stateless API. It has predictable, resource-oriented URLs and accepts POST, GET, PUT, and DELETE requests. Our API uses standard HTTP response codes and returns JSON-encapsulated data.

API Version

The current stable version of the ServiceChannel API is v3.


There are two environments for working with our API: Sandbox2 for testing and Production for live integrations.

App Registration

To use our API, you should have either a subscriber account with the Super Admin role or a provider account with admin rights. You also need to register your application.

Authentication and Authorization

We use the OAuth 2.0 protocol for simple, yet secure and efficient authentication and authorization.

You must include the Authorization header in every API request. Unauthorized calls will fail.

Requests and Responses

Making requests is easy: our API accepts the most common HTTP verbs and has well-structured endpoint routes.

After a successful request, you will receive a JSON-formatted response as well as a standard HTTP status code.

Call Limits

There are limits to how many calls you can make in a minute. For the default limits, see Throttling.

SSL/TLS Version Support

We’re committed to providing secure experiences, so we’ve deprecated Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 and now support only TLS 1.2. This protocol provides greater security, privacy, and data integrity. If you do not enable TLS 1.2, you will not be able to use our services.

Check this news article to learn more about this protocol and verify that your browser and applications use TLS 1.2.

Sandbox Mode

Before going live, thoroughly test and debug your applications in sandbox mode.

You can use your favorite REST client to explore our API, but we recommend the built-in Swagger Explorer, Postman, or Fiddler.
