Publishing an API
How do I publish my API on Fortellis?
To add a new API to the Fortellis platform you must first publish it. Publishing an API involved creating a Swagger 2.0 specification for your API and submitting it to Fortellis for review. Let's walkthrough that process.
The first thing you need is to be a registered Fortellis user and to be logged in to the Developer Network.

Acquiring OAuth tokens with the Implicit Flow
Calls to Fortellis APIs need to be authenticated. To access anything other than test data, you will need to supply an OAuth access token.
How can I try out an API?
As a developers we like to see how to interact with an API. We want to know how requests to the API look. We want to see what kind of responses we will be receiving back and what parameters are expected and required. For this reason all of the APIs on the Fortellis Automotive Commerce Exchange allow you to try them out. In just a few minutes and a few short steps you can be sending requests and receiving responses to available APIs right from the Fortellis Developer Network site.
