We provide our API for use by your own internal or external development team. Kickserv cannot assist with implementation or development of your applications.
If you have questions about implementing the API, please visit our Linkedin® API Group or Swagger UI
where you can post questions to other API users. We monitor that group activity and update our documentation accordingly.
This documentation refers to version 1 of the Kickserv Public API.
The Kickserv API is implemented via XML over HTTP in a RESTful manner. The following resources are available through the API:
1. Authentication is performed via Basic Authentication using an employee's API token.
2. This API token must be passed on every API call.
3. An employee's unique API token can be found in the employee management section of your Kickserv account.
4. An API token should be treated like your normal Kickserv password. Changing your password will also change your API token.
Exploring the API through curl
