A new standard in cloud data exchange

Easily share data between cloud services and communication providers.

The IndexAPI enables you to share and exchange information and data between cloud services and communication providers. Forked from ChatGrape's deep integration technology, the IndexAPI will allow other services to integrate their data into the ChatGrape Autocomplete, but it can also be used independently of ChatGrape to exchange data between cloud tools and other chat services in a deeper and more integrated way than is previously possible with existing APIs.


Easy to use REST API

Create, update and delete arbitrary objects in our autocomplete database.


Bulk indexing

Push all your data at once. Simply POST an array of objects instead of a single object to the API.


Realtime index test environment

Run your code against our API in the API playground, preview the results in real-time and monitor the error logs.


Copy & paste ready documentation

Every API call is documented for simple shell scripts (with cURL and wget) but also in Python, Ruby, JavaScript and PHP.

How it works

See how easy it is to implement the IndexAPI with your service.

In this example, we'll create a 'Contact' object within the 'Important leads' in your CRM/database and send it via the IndexAPI to use it with ChatGrape's powerful autocomplete.

1. Choose desired data to export
# First Name Last Name Category
1 Mark Otto Important leads
2 Jacob Thornton Important leads
3 Larry Brown Important leads
2. Generate JSON and send it to the API
  1. {
  2. "eid": "34", // your internal id
  3. "name": "Mark Otto",
  4. "container": "important leads",
  5. "type": "contact",
  6. "url": ""
  7. }
  1. curl -X POST --data '{"eid": "34", "name": "Mark Otto", "container": "important leads", "type": "contact", "url": ""}'<your_token>/objects
  1. wget --post-data '{"eid": "34", "name": "Mark Otto", "container": "important leads", "type": "contact", "url": ""}'<your_token>/objects
  1. import requests
  2. import json
  3. url = '<your_token>/objects'
  4. data = json.dumps({
  5. "eid": "34",
  6. "name": "Mark Otto",
  7. "container": "important leads",
  8. "type": "contact",
  9. "url": ""})
  10., data=data)
  1. require 'net/http'
  2. require 'json'
  3. url = '<your_token>/objects'
  4. data = JSON.dump({
  5. "eid" => "34",
  6. "name" => "Mark Otto",
  7. "container" => "important leads",
  8. "type" => "contact",
  9. "url" => ""})
  10. Net::HTTP.post_form(URI.parse(url), data)
3. Use your data

Your business data is now ready to be used in ChatGrape to be accesses via its power autocomplete immediately.
