What is an API?

An API (Application Programming Interface) is an interface that connects applications and allows them to talk to one another through simple commands. An API access token is required to access the API.  This can only be accessed by account owners.

Using iQualify’s APIs, your applications can retrieve data from, or send data to iQualify. iQualify offers a wide range of APIs to manage your users and courses and to extract data to your data warehouse and data analytics applications.

To use our API you need to make HTTP requests, providing the expected information in the requested format. To do this, you can use the information we provide in our Developer API documentation. To make these requests, you can: 

  • authenticate and make requests in our Developer API documentation site.

  • use an API tool such as Postman to make requests.

  • do some coding to create scripts or applications to make these requests.

  • or use an integration tool such as Zapier that doesn't require a developer and allows you to connect other apps without coding.

Either way we have resources to help you work with our API and a support team that can advise you on the best approach to fit your needs.

What are the benefits of using iQualify's APIs?

Using our API allows you to work more efficiently by integrating iQualify with one or more of your other systems and automate tasks to reduce manual workload. You can also access detailed data to enable in-depth analysis or reporting. 

Here are some examples of things you could do using the API.

  • Automatically enrol learners in the next course

  • Automatically award badges to learners based on a quiz score

  • Find and flag learners who are "behind"

  • Find and flag learners who are yet to submit an assessment

  • Send assessment data to your assessment record system

  • Add student IDs to learners in iQualify

API Documentation and Tutorials

Along with our Developer API documentation, you can find a range of information and tutorials for using iQualify's API in the API section of our Integration Guide.
