Optimizing Business Operations with Reltio's REST APIs: A Guide to CRUD Operations and More

Reltio provides a comprehensive suite of REST APIs - a specific type of interface that allows different systems to communicate with each other seamlessly, even over the internet. The REST APIs that Reltio offers are powerful tools that support the fundamental actions your business might need to perform: creating, reading, updating, and deleting data (often referred to as CRUD operations). In the Reltio ecosystem, all information is considered a 'resource' and each resource has a unique resource URI (Universal Resource Identifier).

These URIs are the address for that particular resource, and your business can access these resources within the boundaries of your security permissions. Reltio offers four primary actions you can perform on these resources. You can 'get' (read) data, 'add' (create) new data, 'update' existing data, and 'delete' data. The manner in which these operations are executed is uniform across the Reltio Cloud, meaning you can expect consistent performance and functionality. Reltio also offers pre-defined query options for a more streamlined and efficient data retrieval process.

Just remember, when making a request that includes a 'select' parameter, there shouldn't be any space between the query parameters.


Leveraging Real-time Customer APIs for a 360-Degree View

Companies today need a 360-degree real-time view of customers to deliver personalized, engaging experiences across touchpoints. However, with data spread across various systems, they struggle to get a complete picture. Real-time customer APIs enabled by master data management (MDM) platforms, such as Reltio, and orchestration middleware help bridge these disparate sources.

Getting Started with Rest APIs and Reltio

REST APIs in Reltio allow users to interact with the platform programmatically, extending its functionality. These APIs support four primary operations: GET, PUT, POST, and DELETE, which are used to retrieve, create, update, and delete data respectively.

Before beginning, it's necessary to have a few prerequisites installed, including Postman, a text editor such as Notepad++, and Git for version control. Postman is a REST API client used to simplify API calls, offering functionalities like constructing and sending requests, and viewing responses.

The guide also explains how to use Postman to interact with REST APIs in Reltio. The process involves downloading and installing Postman, creating an account, importing the Postman collection for Reltio APIs from the Reltio Community GitHub repository, and setting up the necessary variables for your Reltio instance.

To access Reltio's APIs, users must authenticate themselves and obtain an access token using OAuth 2.0. The guide also provides examples of commonly used API endpoints in Reltio and discusses the potential for automating processes and scripting with APIs, working with filters in API calls, monitoring API status and logs, importing files for bulk updates, and using APIs to explore the Reltio data model and to enrich data using external data providers like DMB.


Real-Time Customer API with Reltio Integration Hub and MuleSoft

In this enlightening session, learn how to architect a dynamic, real-time customer API that will not only streamline the management of your customer data but also regulate the Universal ID. Through the adept utilization of real-time APIs, you'll unlock advanced customer insights, enabling you to tailor personalized experiences and make strategic decisions driven by robust data.

We'll explore the potential of two distinct API platforms - Reltio Integration Hub and MuleSoft - and demonstrate how each can be employed to launch a unified API. This unified API will then serve as a conduit for your systems, facilitating real-time customer interactions in a controlled, consistent manner. You'll leave this session equipped with the knowledge to leverage a real-time customer API as a powerful tool to outpace your rivals and propel your business towards success. Don't miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of real-time customer data management and the key role APIs play in maintaining competitive advantage.

Operational Efficiency with Reltio's API for Real Time MDM

Reltio's API is a crucial component in the implementation of real-time Master Data Management (MDM), offering instant data connectivity and retrieval. Key features include:

  1. Real-Time Data Ingestion: Via Reltio's REST API, data from various sources is ingested in real-time.
  2. Direct Data Lookups: Eliminating traditional operational data stores, users can connect directly to Reltio for immediate data availability.
  3. ID-Based and Multi-Entity Lookups: These allow for fast, reliable data retrieval and the ability to extract multiple entities and relationships with a single API call.

Reltio's API has proven its effectiveness in real-world scenarios, enhancing operational efficiency and data-driven decision-making. Future enhancements, like the Search Connections API, will provide more detailed information about entities and relationships, simplifying complex searches. This tool is not only streamlining business processes but also driving the evolution of real-time MDM.

Ask Me Anything - How to Search my Data with Reltio APIs

This comprehensive webinar is dedicated to helping users effectively leverage the Reltio platform's API for optimized data searching and manipulation. It covers a range of topics, including relevance-based weighted search, attribute comparison, fuzzy search, data export and performance considerations.

The webinar explains how users can assign relevance to data attributes in search results, manage UI labels, and understand the latency between primary storage and Elasticsearch. It also provides insights into Reltio's security model, explaining how it controls access to API functionalities and UI interactions.

Users are taught how to record UI actions for API calls, use cursor search, upload long lists of non-reference values in UI search, and compare attributes. There's also information on Reltio's built-in fuzzy search that uses the Levenshtein distance algorithm.

In addition, the webinar discusses how to optimize performance for large data operations, control simultaneous API requests, capture and analyze API requests for optimization or troubleshooting purposes, and efficiently export data. It mentions upcoming improvements in Reltio's developer experience and enhancements to the data loader mechanism.

The webinar aims to provide practical knowledge and actionable insights for users, enabling them to make the most of Reltio's API capabilities and ensure efficient data retrieval.
