New, Faster RESTful APIs for GradLeaders Career Center

GradLeaders has updated our APIs for GradLeaders Career Center customers to now be RESTful APIs instead of SOAP APIs.

Note: Customers already utilizing the SOAP APIs today will not be affected. However, an end-of-life date in the distant future for these legacy SOAP APIs will be announced at a later date.


Why RESTful APIs?

RESTful is now the most widely-adopted architecture style for APIs. They are easier to implement and faster. “Fetch” limits have also been removed and replaced by a much more robust “pagination” system that also allows filtering results by any custom field. The new API documentation is also significantly better. We now provide a comprehensive Postman collection (“Developers use Postman to build modern software for the API-first world.”).  Our collection allows developers implementing our APIs to have an out-of-the-box working example as well as generate source code for dozens of different programming languages.


To learn more about these APIs, check out our new RESTful API documentation.
