Centralpoint's web API is an interactive module to create or consume web services. Representational state transfer (REST) or RESTful Web services are one way of providing interoperability between computer systems on the Internet. REST-compliant Web services allow requesting systems to access and manipulate textual representations of Web resources using a uniform and predefined set of stateless operations. In a RESTful Web service, requests made to a resource's URI will elicit a response that may be in XML, HTML, JSON or some other defined format. 

The response may confirm that some alteration has been made to the stored resource, and it may provide hypertext links to other related resources or  collections of resources. Using HTTP, as is most common, the kind of operations available include those predefined by the HTTP verbs GET, POST and so on. By making use of a stateless protocol and standard operations, REST systems aim for fast performance, reliability, and the ability to grow, by using reused components that can be managed and updated without affecting the system as a whole, even while it is running. Centralpoint's Web API allows you to initiate web services, complete with token and user security to achieve any local development you may need to do.

We understand that these many systems you have implemented and are running cannot all be swapped out that easy. Sometimes, clients are stuck with some incumbent vendor's application, or are under contract to keep it for many years.

This is why Centralpoint can be installed, without Design or you can set up your own CSS within Centralpiont or inherit your existing CSS from your incumbent system. In this way you gain full access to our robust Module Gallery which includes: Forms Management, Online Education, Workflow, Email Broadcasting and Reporting to turbo charge your existing enterprise. In this scenario, we still have to authenticate your users, and continue to leverage our Global Login module to do, but it is done in reverse. Here, Centralpoint is installed at your location (or hosted by us), and you are able to place these links (our modules and tools) anywhere within your enterprise.

In this scenario, Centralpoint can act as a SAML Service Provider (SP) via Global Login and/or a SAML Identity Provider (IdP) via Deep Links. This typically requires custom set up per client, as each environment is completely different. Although SAML 2.0 is a standard, each installation is unique.  

This allows you to take advantage of the many benefits like Forms, Reporting, Business Intelligence, Workflow, Online Education, Email Broadcasting, and more that your current enterprise might now offer today. Learn more about Centralpoint-To-Go
