SCEDULY REST API Documentation

Introduction

SCEDULY REST API provides a standardized interface for interacting with the SCEDULY system. Communication is performed via the HTTPS version of the HTTP protocol using standard GET and POST methods for data transfer. Requests and responses are formatted using the JSON format.

Authentication

SCEDULY REST API uses the HMAC-SHA256 method to calculate the request signature. Each request must contain a minimum of 3 parameters required for authentication: user, institutionID, signature.

Signature calculation:

data =	HTTP_REQUEST_METHOD + CRLF
	institutionID + CRLF
	RequestURI + CRLF
	Date

signature = HMAC-SHA256(data, password)
* HTTP_REQUEST_METHOD: GET or POST
* institutionID: institution ID in the SCEDULY system
* RequestURI: requested resource (ex: "/users/tuitions")
* Date: CEST (UTC+2), in format YYYY-MM-DD HH:ii (current: 2022-09-26 20:23)
* CRLF: Carriage return (char(13)) + Line feed (char(10))

Example in PHP:

$data =	'GET' . "\r\n" .
	'999' . "\r\n" .
	'/users/tuitions' . "\r\n" .
	'2022-12-31 23:59';
$signature = hash_hmac('sha256', $data, '1234');

Limitations

Only one connection at a time is allowed. Retrieving data with simultaneous (parallel/concurrent) connections can lead to account suspension!
Requests with network transmission time of up to 59 seconds will be accepted 100% of the time. Requests that arrive 2 or more minutes after they are signed will not be processed.
