You can now access your project data programmatically, via a secure REST API. Read on for a quick overview, then head over to api.requirements.cc to learn the details.
What’s an API?
An API lets you access your project items from another program. Currently our API is read-only, meaning you can retrieve items, but you can’t change them or add new ones. Some of the things you might do using the API include integrating with other applications, analyzing your project to create a custom dashboard, or retrieving comments made by people you’ve shared your project with.
We built a sample that accesses all the items in a project and creates an animated word cloud showing the words used most often. You can try it out on your own project at api.requirements.cc. Follow the directions there to create an API key that you’ll need on the Word Cloud page.
We’re in Beta
Please let us know if you have comments or questions. Even if you’re just dabbling with the API, we’d love to hear what type of application you have in mind and what improvements we could make that would help you out.
