HappySignals API

A description of the customer facing API available in the HappySignals Analytics tool.

The API uses a REST style interfaces returning JSON formatted responses. Endpoints are hosted on the base url https://<client>.<environment>.happysignals.com/api/v2/<endpoint> where client is the current instance name, environment is the name of the environment where the instance is located, and endpoint is the relevant resource accessed. See the supported endpoints below.

Access control

Access to the API is controlled by means of a shared secret in the form of a unique API-token per client. To aquire your API-key get in touch with HappySignals support.

The token must be passed with each request to the API, either in the 'api_key' GET or POST parameter or as a bearer token in an Authorization HTTP header.

Please note that the API key must be base64 encoded if used in the Authorization header as per RFC6750.

Collection envelope

Collection resources return responses in a JSON formatted envelope containing the results and metadata about the results such as the total number of results and pagination information.

{
"meta": {
"count": <total number of results>,
"page": <current page>,
"pages": <total number of pages>
},
"items": [
<array of result objects>
]
}

Query syntax

Collection resources generally allow filtering. Use the standard Django ORM query syntax to apply lookups that filter returned data. Filters may be passed either as GET or POST parameters.

The following restricted set of lookups are permitted.

isnull,exact,iexact,contains,icontains, gt,gte,lt,lte,range, in, startswith,istartswith,endswith,iendswith,date,year,month,day,week,week_day,quarter, time,hour,minute,second

An additional lookup ne that is not part of the standard Django set is provided to exclude values.

Results can be sorted using the order parameters by passing the field or fields (separated by comma) to sort on. Sorting can be reversed on a field by field basis by prefixing the field name with -, the default sorting is ascending.

Use the page parameter to navigate long resultsets. Pages start from 1 and run up to the number of pages specified in the meta section of the response.
