What is the erento API?
API stands for ‘Application Programming Interface’. It is a code that allows software programs to independently communicate with one another. Instead of using the ‘Upload an Item’ form in ‘My erento’ to upload each item individually, you can now use the API to directly upload multiple items on to erento all at once!
What is it used for?
Essentially anything you can do in ‘My erento’ to manage your items can now also be managed with the API. All at once and in record time! For example, you can create items, edit descriptions, update prices, bring multiple items online or take them offline, etc.
What are the benefits?
Inventories can be uploaded faster and there is greater control when updating items, allowing you to easily update all of your items as often as the dynamics of your business requires.
What can the API not do?
Currently the API cannot provide statistics, enquiry data, billing or contract data, however this will be incorporated over time.
Who can use the API?
You can! As the API is public, it is available to all erento clientele and developers. Please note; some basic computer programming knowledge is required.
Where can I find more information about the erento API?
You can find further reading on the API in the footer of erento under the API erento link.
