Understanding Nexway Monetize REST APIs

Nexway Monetize is a RESTFull API platform.

What is REST

As written in the REST API Tutorial:

REST is an acronym for REpresentational State Transfer. It is an architectural style for distributed hypermedia systems, and was first presented by Roy Fielding in 2000 in his famous dissertation.

All APIs use JSON format for requests and responses.

Supported HTTP verbs

We have two kinds of APIs.:

  • Resource CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete; see Using HTTP Methods for RESTful Services for more details)

    • GET - Get a resource or a collection of resources
    • POST - Create a new resource
    • PATCH - Partially update a resource
    • DELETE - Delete a resource
  • Action

    • POST - Launch an action

Security

All connections are done through HTTPS (by default TLS 1.2; TLS 1.1 can also be used).

All APIs are secured using JWT Authentication except for Shopper APIs.
