Introduction to the structure of the ADP REST APIs
ADP APIs are designed using an event based pattern for resource management. This pattern separates the act of retrieving resources and modifying them into separate activities along with providing event notifications that indicate the changes to a resource.
As part of the OpenID Connect and Open Authorization (OAuth) 2.0 flows, Access Tokens are provided by ADP® and used for secure calls to protected ADP APIs. This article outlines how Access Tokens are used as well as some limitations and security considerations.
Developers need to be aware of the types of applications that can meet their need for integration with ADP.
Events & event notifications: A practical approach
Events and Event Notifications allow you to easily integrate and interact with our ecosystem. Leverage events to modify data and event notifications to learn about changes to data.
Open Data Protocol (OData)
ADP APIs support the $select, $filter, $top, and $skip options defined in OData. These options allow a client to control the representation that it gets back from the server. Learn more about implementing OData with your requests.
An Introduction to Mutual SSL
Mutual SSL is a security process in which both the client and the server prove their identities to establish trust. Learn more about how this process works and helps to keep your communication secure.
Introduction to Meta
This overview gives an introduction to ADP meta data and displays examples illustrating how using meta data can be advantageous.
