Application Programming Interface (API)
Application Programming Interface (API) allows software programs to communicate with one another and share content, so choosing membership software that comes with one at no additional charge is of benefit to you and your organization!
YourMembership.com provides an XML-based API that is free for all current clients.
The secure API allows our clients to query, create and update online member profiles and member data. With the API, users can conduct real-time import or export of core member data. The YourMembership.com API also enables access to various areas of a member’s profile including media galleries, message centers and wall features. The API provides functionality for image uploading to a member’s media gallery, browsing of albums and photos, retrieval of a member’s media gallery album list, retrieval of a member’s media gallery item list and retrieval of a single media gallery item.
For managing member messages, the API yields a list of messages from a member’s inbox and/or sent folder and allows members to read messages as well as send member-to-member messages. The API also returns a member’s connection category list and a member’s complete connection list. It also enables connect request approval or denial. For member wall management, the API returns a member’s entire wall and enables posts to a member’s wall.
YourMembership.com’s API also delivers enhanced financial transaction data. The API exports donations, dues transactions and store orders for integration into third-party applications or offline databases. Export of store orders includes product information and financial data for order fulfillment and reporting. The API also exports career openings from within their online member communities, if applicable.
