What is an API?
Profound API provides an interface for REST APIs. A REST API is a method of making a routine (any callable piece of logic) available to be called either locally or over a network via the HTTP protocol. This is typically used for code that performs a task, such as:
- Reading from and writing to databases
- Performing business operations
