Polario API & Integration
Use the Polario API for integration and automation of specific data, embedding external toolsor a plethora of other application possibilities.
What is an API?
API stands for Application Programming Interface. Roughly speaking, an API regulates the flow of information between different databases, users and providers. Without APIs, the Internet as we currently know and appreciate it would not be possible at all.
Just about any form of information is sent in some way, shape or form through an interface to various databases where it is then used in different ways.
An example of this is the personal profile of an account. The information, such as name and e-mail address, is entered in the content management system (CMS) or the app and then sent to the API. This processes and stores the information and outputs it back to the apps or CMS when data is requested.
Polario API & Integration
If you look at the technical structure, the API is the heart of Polario. All data sets of our system are filled and modified via interfaces.
Thus, it is possible to easily integrate dynamic web content and components in Polario. In principle, complete custom developments are also possible, which activate highly individual functionalities within your app.
Automate person imports or notifications and much more via API integration. You can also simplify the evaluation of surveys by dynamically reading out the results. Or create your own administration system, tailored to your CI.
It is also possible to use Polario as a backend as a service. Accordingly, only the API will be used to maintain their dataset with the functionalities of Polario. Optionally, rendered Polario frontends can be added or provided by yourself. Either via an external service provider or as in-house development.
For working with our Polario API, we have put special emphasis on the UX for in-house development in order to be particularly supportive in the implementation process and error handling. Integrating of our API gives you countless possibilities just waiting to be explored.
Connection of external API & integration
By communicating with external APIs, e.g. from third-party providers, functionalities can be easily linked together. To make this possible, only an adapter needs to be developed, which ensures smooth communication. This development is particularly favored by the provision of standardized interfaces.
Some of these adapters have already been developed in Polario, such as login via SAML or oAuth2. This simplifies the login process rapidly and enables login via external services such as Google and Microsoft or even company accounts which is of high interest especially for employee apps.
It would also be possible to develop an adapter for the connection of social media platforms. Thus, profile data could be retrieved and displayed within the app.
The development of the adapters for communication with an API & integration of external data can either be done by you or on request through us.
