Welcome to the Janison Insights help portal

Application Programming Interface (API) framework

The Janison API framework is a mechanism that enables Janison Insights to communicate with your internal systems, for example, your HR system.

Janison has API frameworks available for the following functional areas of Insights:

  • Users
  • Events
  • Authoring
Important: Times presented in the APIs will be listed as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) unless specified otherwise

To access comprehensive API details, including parameters, structure, and definitions, please refer to the provided links below leading to the Swagger editor. These pages serve as a valuable resource for your technical team, offering essential information for the setup process. Additionally, non-technical users can explore the available entities and operations associated with each API.

When visiting the Swagger editor, view or expand the sections to understand the operations available for the entities of the functional areas.

Select the tiles below to view the descriptions of the APIs in Swagger.

If you are interested in our API framework, please contact your Janison account manager.

The Janison operations team will set up your access from the Janison side. Your account manager will provide you with the following details required by your technical team to access the framework:

  • Client Id
  • Tenant Id
  • Scope
  • Subscription Key
  • API Endpoint Url
  • Certificate

Demo Code

To use the following .NET C# code example:

  • Import the provided certificate.
  • Install the Microsoft.Identity.Client NuGet package.
  • Install the System.Runtime.Caching NuGet package.
  • Install the System.Security.Cryptography.X509Certificates NuGet package.
  • Update clientId, tenantId, scopes, subscriptionKey and apimEndpointUrl with values provided.
