The Events API allows you to build workflows that respond to activities that have occurred in your core product. Tell us which events you are interested in, where to send them, and we will ensure they get there.
The Events API complement the Web APIs but provide separate functionality.
|Example scenario||Which API?|
|Lookup a customer by number||Web API|
|Download a bill image||Web API|
|Enter a meter reading||Web API|
|Notification of bill acceptance||Event API|
|Notification of meter point supply registration||Event API|
Note the above scenarios are examples only and may or may not exist in the actual APIs. Please consult the documentation for supported APIs.
The key difference between the two APIs is that:
- Web APIs are for external applications to request information or activity
- Events API are for external applications to receive notifications of activity within GCIS core systems (E.g. Junifer, Velocity)
- Much of this activity will not have been requested via the Web API
