Bluedot Public APIs expose the functionality of the web-based back-end system, Bluedot Point Access, as JSON web services.
Given the Public APIs are based entirely on JSON, a broad range of clients and integrations can be built to utilise these services.
Data added through the Public APIs can be reviewed and edited via the Bluedot Point Access web user-interface and vice versa.
Steps involved in setting up Bluedot Point Access account are:
- Register an account on Point Access by visiting the Bluedot website (www.bluedotinnovation.com).
- An email will be sent to the registered email providing you a Customer API Key. This key can also be found at any time under 'Edit Profile' (in the 'Account Management' tab on the Point Access Dashboard). This key is needed for authentication.
