In order to make API calls, you have to create an API account. See Register API for the steps.

Accessing API v4 using Swagger

You can explore all API methods on our OpenAPI (Swagger) specification page. That page describes all API methods in detail, and lets you execute each method individually.

Furthermore, you can use our Swagger specification along with Swagger Codegen to generate client code that will get you started in integrating the Uptrends API in your own scripts or applications. For more information about Swagger and Swagger tools, please visit Swagger.io.
