API Gateway | Application programming interface
API (application programming interface) is a functionality that allows applications to talk each other. Aalto API Gateway provides open interfaces through which developers and applications can find information about Aalto and Aalto's operations.
API interfaces are used by application developers to get the information they need from Aalto's interfaces.
Features of API Gateway in a nutshell:
- Application interface for multiple data sources (REST, JSON)
- Interface access log (for application developer viewable)
- Information on interface changes
- Managing Interface Users
Interfaces are specifically intended as a source of information for applications based on Aalto's information, the use of data
The information sources of the interfaces are Aalto's centralized systems whose information is maintained and up-to-date. At present, Oodi and ASIO are the sources of information.
If you do not find the information source you need, you can suggest new data. Submit proposals either by email to servicedesk.aalto.fi or through the API Gateway's internal feedback feature.
