What is Rest API?

A REST API defines a set of functions which developers can perform requests and receive responses via HTTP protocol such as GET and POST.

What is Screen name?

The unique name provided to your SalesIQ portal is known as the screen name.



What is response format?

The response format is how you get the answer from the respondent. Both the success and error responses hold the status code as 200.

Success Response Format

If the request is successful, the response object contains a key "data" which holds the result of the request.


      "data" : <value - string, array or object>

Error Response Format:

In case of errors, the response object contains a key "error" which contains info about the error. Error object contains 2 keys namely the "code" ( unique error code") and the "message" (message describing the error")


  "error" :
      "message":"Invalid URL",

Basic Authorization Errors
