The Cloud4Wi REST APIs allow you to query meta-data about your accounts, end-users, Hotspots, Venues, accounting sessions, Splash Portal impressions, Analytics data etc. . Since the API is based on REST principles, it's very easy to write and test applications. You can use your browser to access URLs, and you can use pretty much any HTTP client in any programming language to interact with the API.
This section provides all the basic information you need to use Cloud4Wi REST APIs.
If you are getting started, then you have to follow the workflow below:
