The Company API allows you to retrieve, create and delete client Companies on the platform.
This enables scenarios where Companies created/maintained in other systems (e.g. SAP, Salesforce) can be replicated to the platform automatically.

On our Cloud service, this API is available via SSL secured HTTPS connection using the REST GET, POST and PUT verbs.
The format query string parameter controls the desired response format.  Specify either xml or json.

/api/v2/company?format=xml/json


POST Request

You may use either JSON or XML formats in your request.
You indicate this by setting the ContentType HTTP header as "application/json" or "application/xml". If no ContentType is specified, XML format is assumed.

The required and optional parameters for a POST to the Company API are outlined below.

Note that if you wish to automatically create a support user for your internal use with this Company, you should set the AddSupportUser property on Company to be True.

API Usage Example

Given that the API is REST based, you can access the API directly via your web browser to test it.  Obviously for actual integration works, you will need to make a web request to the given REST URL and then parse the response.

Below is a simple POST example which creates a new Company for the specified Vendor, using XML format.
