Consuming Cloud API

The InsuranceSuite Cloud API is a set of RESTful system APIs that caller applications can use to request data from or initiate action within an InsuranceSuite application. These APIs provide content for the REST API framework that is present in all InsuranceSuite applications. The APIs are built using the Swagger 2.0 Specification. These are also referred to as the system APIs.

The following topics discuss how caller applications can consume the system APIs in Cloud API. This includes how to:

  • Construct GET requests to query for data
  • Construct POST requests to create new data
  • Construct PATCH requests to modify existing data
  • Construct DELETE requests to remove data
  • Use query parameters to refine response payloads
  • Reduce the number of calls needed to accomplish a business flow
  • Prevent lost updates using checksums
