Hand’s up if you think your API is perfect.
Okay, we will admit even our own isn’t finished yet!
Why is that?
It is because our platform is continually growing as we develop new features and functionality. This is a direct result of our growing partner base and how we are learning and understanding our users better.
As we explore the realms of what’s possible we realise just how much more we could do.
In truth when we envisaged Cyclr we thought everyone would use our GUI (Graphical User Interface) to build and develop integrated workflows. However, it turns out many users also want to drive Cyclr via our API. This is because you can extend the functionality of the platform even further.
Therefore, we totally underestimated the power and capability of our own API, which is kind of ironic as we are an API business!
Why tell you this?
Mainly because we meet so many businesses that haven’t yet finished their API (see this other blog on a similar topic) and we need to get a message across.
When you are our partner we will iterate on your connector as you iterate your API. This is because we are on the same journey, we know what it takes. Plus, we know it’s never finished. Therefore, we have no expectation of a ‘Perfect API’ (chance would be a fine thing) when we start working with clients, we are used to it.
Get your Auth process sorted, develop a couple of methods and endpoints and lets’ go on a journey together.
We are always happy to share (and receive) feedback – we are all, after all, a part of the API economy.
