Theme Based FAQs - API Documentation

This quick FAQ section helps you know the new trends, technologies, and tools.

Q. What is meant by API?
A.
API means Application Programming Interface. API is the programming interface that helps sharing and consuming of data between applications.

Q. How does the API communication work?
A .
If there are two applications, A and B, they can communicate using the APIs:

    • Application A can REQUEST Application B for accessing some resources.
    • Application B can provide a RESPONSE to the request. With a response, the request is either approved or rejected.
    • A Resource refers to the data set in an application and is returned as Response.

Q. What are the key types of API?
A
. SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), REST (REpresentational State Transfer) and Webhook are the popular types of APIs.

    • SOAP : Uses only XML for data exchange.
    • REST : Uses JSON/XML/text/image for data exchange.
    • Webhook : Working over the web, Webhooks are data and executable commands sent from one application to another over HTTP that run when an event occurs.

Q. Does an API require access to the Web?
A .
No, not always, access to the web is required only when accessing a web service. Some APIs run within a company’s internal network on internal microservices of the application without needing access to the web.

Q. Are all APIs web services?
A .
No. Not all APIs are web services. But all web services are APIs.

Q. Can any application access any resource from another application using an API?
A .
Yes and No. If an application does not define access rights, any application can access the resources. But, to avoid threat and also to provide selective access, companies use Authentication and Authorization to allow selective access

Q. What do Authentication and Authorization define?
A .
Authentication defines the identity of a requestor and Authorization defines the access level of Application A in Application B.

Q. What is CRUD in API?
A .
CRUD is the abbreviation for Create, Read, Update, Delete – the popular action performed by APIs on applications using the Post (create), Get (Read), Put (Update) and Delete (delete) methods.

Q. What is an EndPoint?
A .
An EndPoint is a URL that provides an exact description about how to access the resource for which the request is sent. The description contains host URL and parameters.

Q. What are parameters?
A .
Parameters are variables used in an endpoint for a resource. Different types of parameters are Query parameters, Path parameters, and Headers.

Q. Does an API fail ever? How does one know about failures?
A .
Yes, like everything else, API fails too. To let users know about the failures, Status Codes are defined. Every status code number informs why an API failed. For success, Status Code 200 is displayed.

Q. Does one need programming or coding knowledge to become an API documentation
writer?
A .
No, not necessarily. If as a tech writer you can understand a product, you can easily become an API documentation writer. For API documentation, a writer is not required to write code but just needs to read it properly.
