There are many large service providers such as Line, Google Maps, Facebook or even your partners allow others to access their functionality via JSON APIs. If you want to use 3rd party data or connect to your partners’ JSON API, you can simply integrate their JSON APIs into your service flow. To do so, you will need to create JSON Adapter on SSQUARE to specify transport and data structure of API you’re going to integrate with.
Before you begin
Herein SSQUARE, JSON API is decoupled its configuration into 2 layers;
- Transport Layer – Define type of transport protocol. For JSON API, HTTP protocol is used for data transmission.
- Adapter Layer – Define JSON requests and responses of your API
You’ll need to create HTTP Adapter and JSON Adapter respectively to use JSON API in service flow on SSQUARE.
