API Technical Knowledge Required

APIs are advanced tools and something that requires knowledge and experienced engineers or web developers in order to use them effectively. There is an expectation that in order to use these tools and documentation, you have an understanding of how APIs work, along with a strong understanding of how to use them to manage integrations with AccuLynx and other products.

We do not teach people how to use our API, nor do we explain how to use different tools to connect to our API. Therefore, we will only help with troubleshooting issues and only respond to communications sent through the Contact Us form.

Please also note that our outstanding customer support team, which completely supports our web and mobile applications, does not have the ability to support our API or answer any technical questions you may have about using APIs. They are highly skilled AccuLynx experts but not engineers, and they do not have the technical expertise to work through the myriad of issues that can be part of integrating APIs with AccuLynx.

What is required?

In order to use the AccuLynx API, you must have an active AccuLynx account and have acquired an API Key, which the company administrator of your AccuLynx account can provide for you. Accounts with multiple locations will need to connect each location to our API individually.

API Options

Basic API - Using Zapier

Zapier is a web-based service that allows users to automate tasks between different web applications without writing any code. Zapier connects different web applications together and creates workflows or "Zaps" that automate tasks and save time.

For those with limited integration experience or developer resources, we suggest using our Zapier integration. Zapier requires less technical expertise to connect your AccuLynx data to another application, but it is not without its own technical requirements. There are limitations on which software and data can be integrated with AccuLynx using Zapier. In order to use Zapier, a Zapier account is required.

Advanced API

Experienced developers will typically use the API endpoints that AccuLynx has provided. This option gives you access to ALL available endpoints, supporting documentation and code snippets describing how to integrate with AccuLynx, and the ability to test what you are building.
