GET Company

The Company API allows you to retrieve, create and delete client Companies on the platform. 
This enables scenarios where Companies created/maintained in other systems (e.g. SAP, Salesforce) can be replicated to the platform automatically.

On our Cloud service, this API is available via SSL secured HTTPS connection using the REST GET, POST and PUT verbs.
The format query string parameter controls the desired response format.  Specify either xml or json.

/api/v2/company?format=xml/json

To search for and retrieve multiple Companys at once, use a GET with the search API found at:

/api/v2/company/search?format=xml/json

NOTE: The search API end point implements pagination and, as such, you must cater for this when you connect to our platform.
You can learn more about pagination in our API overview section.

Given that the API is REST based, you can access the API directly via your web browser to test it.  Obviously for actual integration works, you will need to make a web request to the given REST URL and then parse the response.

Below is a simple GET example which gets a User, using XML format.
