REST API, put simply, is an API that allows other applications to fetch, push or delete data from SharePro. This can be done over the internet bandwidth. This means that the application fetching or pushing data into SharePro need not be near your servers at all. Remember that this is done in a secured manner using special hidden keys and IP restrictions, etc.
What are the Possibilities?
- Your browser-based CTCL application can fetch the Ledger data of a client from SharePro. The data is returned in JSON format [search google for JSON]. The CTCL application takes this data and designs the ledger using styles compatible with your CTCL application’s look and feel.
- Your 3rd Party or Inhouse eKYC application onboard a new customer. The moment the customer is onboarded, the application pushes that data into SharePro and a new Client [Trading and/or Depository] is created in SharePro as an offline client ready for maker-checker. You check the data, input additional information if any, and lo a new client is created in SharePro, ready for upload to the exchanges/depositories.
- Your eKYC application can make queries to check for the existence of a particular PAN or UCC.
REST API development is currently our busiest development work.
