Accessing InEvent's API

What are APIs?
API stands for Application Programming Interface, which is a software intermediary that allows two applications to talk to each other. This communication can take place between totally different programming languages, ​​in an agile and secure way, because they create a kind of gate, in which only a specific set of information (defined by the company that owns the integration) will be available and sent. In other words, an API is the messenger that delivers your request to the provider that you're requesting it from and then delivers the response back to you. An example of it would be the integration between Facebook and Uber. When registering, many people click on the button Login with Facebook, which is often logged on people's smartphones. The API pulls the Facebook registration information and sends it to Uber, being incredibly convenient for users that don't want to take their time creating filling up another registration form.

InEvent Developer Guide

Our philosophy is ''If there's no REST documentation for this module, it doesn't exist". That's why since the very beginning of InEvent, every single module has been documented and we have created a Developer Guide to help you integrate with our API.

You can also access our guides from the API Reference by clicking on Guides In the upper left corner.

If you plan to use a CRM platform other than Salesforce or Marketo, we recommend using the InEvent API to perform the integration.
InEvent is a trademark that cannot be utilized in URLs. Therefore, if you input InEvent into the nickname field when creating an event, which serves as the URL of your event, it will result in a 406 error.
