The BOTS BEM API
The BEM API is a REST API designed to give your bots access to the Bots platform. This allows you to create, manage, and delete bot properties as well as send messages.
The BOTS BEM API
What is an API:
An API, according to the official definition, is a set of definitions and protocols for developing and integrating application software (a contract between an information provider and an information user) - establishing the content required from the consumer (the call) and the content required by the supplier (the response). In simpler terms, an API helps you interact with a computer system so you can get the information or perform the function that you want. APIs are also a middleman that connects end users (or clients) with the resources or web services they desire. It's also a means for organizations to share resources and information while maintaining security, control, and authentication by deciding who gets access to what.
The BEM API, also known as the REST API:
A REST API (also known as a RESTful API) is an application programming interface (API or web API) that adheres to the principles of the REST architectural style and allows for interaction with RESTful web services. The acronym REST stands for representational state transfer, and it was created by computer scientist Roy Fielding.
The BEM API is a REST API designed to give your bots access to the Bots platform. This allows you to create, manage, and delete bot properties as well as send messages. It allows bot creators to build Orders and Signals. REST is a collection of architectural constraints rather than a protocol or a standard. API developers may use many different techniques to implement REST.
You need to create a Bot Name and obtain a Key in the App to gain access to the API. You should use the following when developing or testing your bots: https://signal.revenyou.io/paper/api/signal/v2.
After your bot leaves quarantine: https://signal.revenyou.io/production/api/signal/v2.
