PeerClick provides a REST type API using secure HTTPS methods as the transport layer and JSON as the format. Our central gateway API api.peerclick.com is used to process all requests to the corresponding micro-services by including various directory suffixes. Full API documentation is available at http://developers.peerclick.com.

  • If you want to use the PeerClick API, you must remember that there is a limit of 3 API requests per second.

  • If you want to use the PeerClick API using a passkey, you need to generate it in PeerClick.

URL Request Anatomy

The request URL may look like this:

https://api.peerclick.com/v1/report?groupBy=campaign&from=2020-01-01

where:

  • https://api.peerclick.com/v1 - URL of the base request. The base request URL is fixed and the same for all requests.

  • /report - directory suffix.

  • ?groupBy=campaign&from=2020-01-01 - additional query parameters depending on your choice.

Directory suffixes example:

  • /report

  • /campaign

  • /offer

Some requests also require adding the component ID after the service directory, those that are clearly indicated in our API documentation through curly braces, for example:

/ campaign / {campaignId}

where {campaignId} needs to be replaced with the campaign ID from your PeerClick account. Additional parameters are then placed in the URL query line (after the question mark ?) to describe the requested data, for example:

?withPages=1
