Advanced API parameters
In addition to the list of regular parameters for the Light Blue API, there are a number of parameters that can be used by anyone sending data from another system to the Light Blue API, or building their own plugins.
HEALTH WARNING: you should not use these parameters if you’re using one of our WordPress plugins, because the plugins already supply them for you.
|Source||Text||e.g. “Tom’s custom Light Blue plugin”. This helps us to track down problems any might have with a specific plugin or service that’s sending data to the Light Blue API, as well as ensuring that IDs or References provided by different services don’t clash.|
|SourceAPIVersion||Text||The version number of your plugin. This helps us to track down problems any might have with a specific plugin that’s sending data to the Light Blue API|
|ID||Text||If an ID parameter is supplied, the Light Blue API will check that it hasn’t already received a duplicate API request. The Light Blue API checks for a unique combination of your ID parameter and the Source parameter (so different sources of data can use the same ID without clashing).|
