Gigya's REST API is the core of Gigya's service. On top of the REST API, Gigya offers a set of Server Side SDKs that provide wrap around the API. The Server Side SDKs make it simple to integrate Gigya's service in server applications of various development environments. Check out our Server Side SDKs documentation and find out if there is an SDK available for your preferred language. Otherwise, please continue with this guide and learn how to use our REST API directly.
Gigya's server-to-server API uses a REST-like interface. This means that the API method calls are made over the internet by sending HTTP GET or POST requests to the Gigya REST API server and the response is returned as XML/JSON. Nearly every software development environment provides methods for communicating over HTTP with a REST server.
Gigya's REST API may be applied in compliance with the OAuth 2.0 standard or with our proprietary authorization method. Please follow one of the following guides, to integrate Gigya's REST API calls, using your preferred authorization method:
- Using Gigya's REST API in compliance with OAuth 2.0
- Using Gigya's REST API with our proprietary authorization method
The REST API Reference provides specification to the various REST API methods supported by Gigya.
