"API" stands for "Application Programming Interface." An API is software that allows two applications to connect to each other. Chime has an "Open API" meaning users and/or vendors can access available endpoints as long as they have account credentials to do so.
Accessing Chime's API
To access Chime's API, please see https://api.chime.me/docs/index.html.
(1) API Key
If you are integrating another application with Chime and it asks for your Chime API key, here is where you can find that. Navigate to Settings > Integrations > API:
(2) Developer Access
If you are a developer and you are looking to build an API connection with Chime, please review the following article: Chime OAuth 2.0.
Email Address Verification
As of July 5, 2021, leads that are brought into Chime via our API will now have their email address checked with a third party vendor to determine if it is valid or not. If an email address is found to be invalid, it will be marked as such within a lead profile page and this keeps auto-emails from being sent to that address.
If you have any questions regarding this topic specifically, please reach out to our Integrations Team at <email@example.com> and we will do our best to assist you.
