API Allegro resources are available in two technologies:
Our main API that we work on is
Use it when creating a new application or developing features in an existing one.
The WebAPI is a legacy solution we only keep in maintenance mode.
We no longer develop WebAPI and we will shut it down eventually.
All the new features we work on are developed for the REST API only.
Allegro REST API is based on the HTTP protocol and its methods (GET, POST, PUT, DELETE) and is organised into
resources. The authorization is based on OAuth2.
We recommend using the REST API.
Allegro WebAPI is a webservice, based on the SOAP protocol that use XML messages and the RPC protocol.
The service is fully compatible with all current SOAP standards.
WebAPI is no loger developed.
