ITscope API 2.0

An easy way to learn the ITscope API 2.0, the Interactive API .

We recommend upgrading to this latest version for our customers using API 1.0.

Innovations, enhancements and improvements over the API version 1.0:

  • The performance of the releases, whether exports or API methods, through the API 2.0 is much better than through the API 1.0
  • There are only 4 übersichtlicherere data format profiles for products available
    • Standard – provides the data in easily usable form ready – as a flat CSV files, or XML, or JSON format with product, supplier, property and cross-selling data
    • Standard Update – this can be used to efficiently hourly adjustment of prices and availability
    • Developer – only recommended for absolute ITscope data professionals. Technical advice from ITscope is necessary.
    • Developer Update – this can be used to efficiently hourly adjustment of prices and availability
  • All three output formats – CSV, XML and JSON – have the same contents, which in the end brings benefits through a uniform sequence and clearer naming of fields. The readability for the XML, JSON and CSV formats was significantly improved by renaming and grouping fields.
  • All data format and output format combinations have a limit of 800,000 products per export in the API 1.0.
  • Order of contents in all formats (CSV, JSON, XML)
  • CSV does not have carriage returns (CR) or linefeeds (LF) more within columns or elements
