Checking API Status

Partners can use the GET/ping call to monitor if our API is up and running. Partners will need to enter a practice ID that their API key has authorization to access. Below are the four possible messages that the GET/Ping API will return, and what each message indicates.

GET/Ping

API is Up

  • Response Status: 200 Ok
  • Response Body:   {“Pong":”true”}

 

API is Down

The GET/ping request will result in time out

 

Common Ping Error Responses

2. The partner requested a practice ID in the GET/Ping call that the partner's API key has not been granted rights to access.
