NOTE

Currently the NATS REST API is in the process of being updated which includes changes to how data is being passed to and from the API itself. We will update this Article when this update is complete to let you know which version to upgrade to. If you would like to use the current NATS REST API, please submit a support ticket and a tech will add the additional feature to your install. Please understand that the system itself will change during the course of this update

Overview

The NATS REST API is accessible at http://<domain>/api/<endpoint>/<action>

  • The API is accessible to admins. /api/<endpoint>/<action> is available only to admins.
  • Replace <domain> with your NATS install domain name.
  • Replace <endpoint> with the endpoint that you are trying to access
  • Some of the endpoints do not require <action> in the url and all of the urls will be specified in the documentation

Allowed Endpoints

Gaining Access to the REST API

In order to access NATS API your IP address must be in the ADMIN_API_ALLOWED_IPS list. You can add or remove IP addresses to this list via the Configurations Admin under the "Security" tab.

Allowed HTTP Request Methods

  • GET
  • POST
  • PUT
  • PATCH

Response Format

Response Status Codes

200

  • On Success, the API will return a '200' status and output the results of the API call. Please refer to the available API endpoints for possible responses.
  • NOTE: As long as the endpoint and HTTP request method are valid and there are no invalid parameters, a '200' response is returned.

400

  • The API will return a '400' status if an invalid or unsupported HTTP request is sent.

404

  • The API will return either a '404' status if an invalid parameter is sent, or if an HTTP request is sent to an invalid endpoint.

405

  • The API will return a '405' status if an invalid HTTP request method is used.

Authentication

  • The NATS REST API uses HTTP Header Authentication.
  • Each REST API request requires the Affiliate username and the Affiliate API key to be sent with the HTTP headers of the request.
  • To retrieve your API key simply select it from the login table of your NATS database or put in a support ticket and we can retrieve it for you.
  • If you do not have an API key, you can set one by going to the Affiliates Admin and clicking the icon labeled, "Change API Key".
  • Please note that only full admin accounts are authorized to use the API and set an API key.

Required HTTP Headers

  • api-key: Affiliate api key
  • api-username: Affiliate user name
    • NOTE** The headers keys are NOT case sensitive.

Example Authentication

Authentication can be handled in various ways using different programming languages. Below are some complete example calls to the Ping endpoint with HTTP Header authentication.

PHP

<?php 
$url = 'http://domain/api/ping';
$curl = curl_init(); 
 
$headers = array( 
    'api-key: 44b5498dbcb481a0d00b404c0169af62', 
    'api-username: tmm1phrvezsbu' 
); 
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers); 
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true); 
curl_setopt($curl, CURLOPT_URL, $url); 
                                                                                                                                                               
$resp = curl_exec($curl); 
//dumps an associative array representation of the json 
var_dump(json_decode($resp, true)); 
// Close request to clear up some resources 
curl_close($curl); 
?> 

Python

  • This example requires pip and the request library which can be installed via pip by: 'pip install requests'
import requests

url = 'http://domain/api/ping'
headers = {
	'api-key': '44b5498dbcb481a0d00b404c0169af62',
	'api-username': 'tmm1phrvezsbu'
}
 params =  { 
        'payvia_type_id': 1, 
        'rule_type': 'enabled' 
 }
	
res = requests.get(url, params=params, headers=headers)
print res.json()

node.js

  • This example requires npm and the request module which can be installed via npm by: 'npm install request'
var request = require('request');
                          
var options = {           
    url: 'http://domain/api/ping',
    method: 'GET',        
    json: true,           
    headers: {            
        'api-key': '44b5498dbcb481a0d00b404c0169af62',
        'api-username': 'tmm1phrvezsbu'
    }                     
};                        
                          
function callback(error, response, body) {
    if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
        console.log(body);
    }                     
    else{                 
        console.log(body);                                                                                                                                     
    }                     
                          
}                         
                          
request(options, callback);

Curl

curl -X GET 'http://domain/api/ping' -H "api-key: 44b5498dbcb481a0d00b404c0169af62" -H "api-username: tmm1phrvezsbu"

And this is the output:

true
