Today, we released our version 1.0 API for the DAMAGE iD API.
The release of the damage identification API is important because it opens up the functionality of DAMAGE iD to developers and IT integrators. Developers can use the API, or “application programming interface” to integrate more closely with DAMAGE iD – exposing it’s core services to software applications outside of the DAMAGE iD app and web portal. For example, the API could be used to pull damage tracking features into a conventional rental software application. Or the API could be used to bring Case statistics data into an analytics (reporting) package or database.
The documentation is a work-in-progress and will be updated as new features are added. The documentation can be found at https://www.damageid.com/api.
What is an API? According to Google, an API is a set of functions and procedures allowing the creation of applications that access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other service.
To gain access to the API, developers must have a typical username and password as well as an “API Key” which is available upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
