API & API Documentation

All that you need to know about our Data API

  • It is an easy to use REST-based API that uses HTTP basic AUTH for authentication
  • All data gets uploaded to your specific project location on the API. A typical link would look like- http://api.promptcloud.com/data/info?id=<PROJECT_ID>
  • The Project id is provided to the client at the beginning of any project
  • It has provision to only give you files after a particular timestamp, when you have already downloaded data up to a certain point


We also have a Ruby gem for programmable access to our
API- https://rubygems.org/gems/promptcloud_data_api Ruby gem for downloading data from PromptCloud's API after big data processing
