Web integrators can use secure REST APIs to access data about a Fluid Topics portal. The Fluid Topics server exposes the APIs while acting as a gateway to the portal's Knowledge Hub, user assets, user accounts, and more. After retrieving data, integrators can read it, dump it, or use it in other applications.

It is mandatory to use only public web services to access data about a portal. Public web services are the ones listed in this document. Antidot cannot be held responsible if using private web services damages a portal.

Use case API integration
