What's in it for you
The Showpad API can be used to access Showpad data and functionality, such as creating, editing, and deleting files and users. This allows you to automate workflows and extend Showpad's functionality. You can integrate with Digital Asset Management systems, User Management platforms, and many other applications.
We provide this feature so you, as a developer or engineer, can set up communication between Showpad and particular applications you use at your company.
To try out requests, open the API Explorer in the Showpad Online Platform.
Note: When using timestamps in API requests, make sure they are in Epoch format or SimpleDateFormat("yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss").
