Apperian API Reference

This guide describes the Application Programming Interface (API) to Apperian’s EASE web services. Through HTTPS requests, you can harness the power of the EASE platform as part of a custom enterprise mobility solution.

For an overview of Apperian EASE and a complete library of documentation for the EASE administration console (the EASE Portal), visit the Apperian Documentation Center. Note that whenever using the API Reference, you can click the Apperian logo at the top left to link to the Apperian Documentation Center.

Ready to dig in? See the List of Interfaces below for a brief description of the available interfaces. Click on an interface for more detail, including a description of the resources you can call during a transaction and a sample request and response message. For a quick link to an index of all resources, click “routing table” at the top right of the page.


The examples in this guide use cURL, an open-source command line tool, to send HTTPS requests. These examples work on computers running Mac OS, Linux, or Cygwin (a collection of tools for running Linux apps on Windows). If you want to use cURL during your development and testing process, it is available at

All the examples show URLs for the EASE NA (North America) production environment. There are different base URLs for the EU (Europe) and NA environments (see Base URL for API Resources). If you copy examples from this guide, be sure to use the correct URL.
