Coscine offers an Application Programming Interface for the automization of workflows. Learn more about the Coscine API in the following paragraphs.
You can interact with coscine via a REST API (REpresentational State Transfer). For this purpose you need an access token. The process of creating an access token in your user profile is described in Access Token. Once you have an access token associated with your coscine account you can start using the API.
To become familiar with API functions and how to use them you should take a look at the documentation of the specific endpoints. There you are able to test certain functions with custom parameters.
Bindings for various programming languages
You can use the API with a variety of programming languages. We have already implemented an example for you in the Python programming language:
Following the step by step instructions for building the example program, you will learn how to include the Coscine API in the programming language of your choice. As an experienced user, you may skip the example and integrate the resulting library directly into your own program. Nevertheless, it makes sense to take a look at the step-by-step instructions beforehand. The repository for the Python connector can be accessed via the following link:
