alerts API


Alerts API lists the notifications sent to the users. Based on the parameters entered in the Alerts URL, the security token is authenticated and returns all basic Alert details of the user available in the Linchpin application.


Security token and origination url, should be sent as response headers for authentication

  • Once the Linchpin app is purchased, an interface will be provided to generate the security token which will be unique for a company.
  • Alerts API is authenticated based on the company token and external URL from where the request is sent.
