Revision as of 12:24, 13 September 2019
eCl@ss Structure Elements and Mappings can be accessed via REST Services. Please contact eCl@ss Office for the required credentials.
eCl@ss dictionary API
The eCl@ss dictionary API supports retrieval of individual classes and properties by their IRDI.
The system returns a self-contained eClassXML 3.0 file for the requested structure element.
Self-contained means that not only the requested element itself but also its referenced elements are contained in the result.
Important Note: The class API can be used to retrieve classification classes and application classes. When a classificaton class is retrieved also the application classes it classifies are returned but not vice versa.
The ecl@ss dictionary API is documented in SwaggerHub. There it is also possible to make guided example calls to the API from a browser.
eCl@ss mapping API
The eCl@ss mapping API supports retrieval of individual mappings between dictionary releases for application classes.
The user has to supply IRDIs for the source and target dictionary release as well as for the application class they want to have mapped.
The system returns a mapping of the application class in eCl@ss XML 3.0 format that can be interpreted as a transaction update file.
The ecl@ss mapping API is documented in SwaggerHub. There it is also possible to make guided example calls to the API from a browser.
