Datrm.in API v1

Welcome ninjas, hackers, and those mid-sprint! For developers looking to integrate Datrm.in with other services, we offer a public RESTful API. (Note: as with all of Datrm.in, the API is currently in beta. Please, be gentle… and let us know if anything breaks.)

Zapier

Before you go about building a custom integration with Datrm.in, we just want to be sure you know about our integration with Zapier. Zapier is a web-based tool that makes it easy to automate tasks between web apps.

With Zapier, you can easily plug Datrm.in into any workflow involving hundreds of apps, including web forms, email marketing, social media, customer support, Google Sheets, and more. Here’s a handy overview.

To integrate Datrm.in with Zapier, first setup a free Zapier account, then contact us to let us know the email address you are using on Zapier. We’ll then share our private Zap with you.

Base URL

All URLs referenced in the documentation have the following base:

https://app.datrm.in/api/v1

Authentication

A valid API token is required to access all resources via the API. Users can obtain their personal token from the My Profile menu item. Just click on the Integrations tab and generate an API token.

There are two ways to pass a token to the API successfully. First, an API token can be appended to the URL using the parameter apiKey. An example request might look like:

https://app.datrm.in/api/v1/contacts?apiKey=XXX

Also, a token can be added to the request header using the key “apiKey”.

Note: Users with access to multiple accounts will need to generate a separate API token for each account.

Resources

The Datrm.in API allows you to create, update, delete and retrieve contact data for your account. Currently the only object supported is contacts, however we plan to add future objects for transactions, tasks, and other contact-related information.

All API responses are returned in JSON.

Create or Update a Contact

Include a data paramenter in the body of the request with any fields for the contact listed below.

Example request

POST https://app.datrm.in/api/v1/contacts?apiKey=XXX

Body:

Parameters

  • apiKey: The authenticated user’s API token, retrieved from My Profile. Alternatively, can be added to the request header.

Required Fields

All POST requests must have some combination of Datrm.in contact ID, firstName, lastName and/or at least one email address.

How We Check for Duplicates

If a Datrm.in system ID is passed via the body attribute “id”, then the POST request will update that resource.

If a name only is provided, Datrm.in will look for matching contacts with that name and update the first matching contact found.

If an email only is provided, then Datrm.in will look for matching contacts with that email and update the first matching contact found.

However, for the most accurate updates (other than passing a Datrm.in resource ID), if both a name and an email address are provided, then Datrm.in will match on both fields. This ensures that couples who share an email address (or event staff who reuse email addresses for registration) don’t get accidentally updated.
