Building an API
Our talented team of developers are hard at work, building a RESTFUL API for Amplify. As Amplify is a large system, we have divided the API into two use cases.
The Amplify API will be documented using the OpenAPI 3.0 format and published on SwaggerHub. Authentication will be provided by Amplify, or by the user organisation via the SAML 2.0 protocol.
Our initial focus is on reporting and analysis. We aim to simplify the extraction of data from Amplify by publishing API endpoints that grant access to Amplify data sets. The API endpoints allow analytics packages such as PowerBI, SAP Analytics Cloud and Tableau to communicate directly with Amplify.
We will also be looking to provide connectors that streamline accessing Amplify data from analytics tools (see PowerBI connector proposal attachment).
Our prioritisation approach for integration API endpoints is customer lead. We are seeking input from our users for Integration use cases. If you have an integration that you would like to discuss, please reach out via a support ticket or the community forum, or comment on this article.
