General Information: API Documentation

The Data Simply API can be considered REST-ful and implements the JSON API standard.  It is designed to have predictable, resource-oriented URLs and to use HTTP response codes to indicate errors. We stick to the standards as much as possible, so our data can be consumed by off-the-shelf HTTP clients.

JSON will be returned in all responses from the API, including errors.

Authentication is handled via the token listed above, which is passed via the 'Authentication' header:

Authentication: Bearer <token>

Each of the endpoints will also include links to related resources in the 'links' section. For example the /v1/sec_filings/:id page will contain links to the tags for the filing, as well as the original document at the SEC.
