Janrain provides access to advanced features through a RESTful web API that requires only the ability to post HTTP requests and parse XML or JSON responses. You can use these requests to retrieve contact data, map an identity to multiple accounts, gain access to analytics, and more. The RESTful format allows you to communicate with your application, and relay the results to your own site.
Janrain also uses RESTful APIs for user authentication.
Note: Our RESTful API supports both POST and GET methods, but for security reasons, POST should be used.
