The DiscoverText API

Many have asked for it, and your requests have not fallen on deaf ears. We are proud to announce the DiscoverText development team is testing an Application Programming Interface (API) to our internal “sifter” data structures. The new DiscoverText API will allow authorized DiscoverText users to access their data and perform DiscoverText functions from third party client applications.

 The DiscoverText API uses standard JSON for all object output and conforms to the oAuth 1.0 standard for authentication to ensure your data is safe. More information can be found on the DiscoverText API Documentation website.

Still in its early alpha phase, the DiscoverText API offers access to projects, archives, buckets and datasets. Functionality is available for obtaining an archive’s de-duplicated units, near-duplicate clustering, as well as machine classification scores.

If you need functionality that is not currently included in the API, please let us know. At the moment, we are currently only offering the API to DiscoverText enterprise customers. If you are interested, please contact us.
