Getting Started

Requests to Cartup AI APIs are standard HTTP(s) calls that can be made from the command line or using the tools available in your chosen programming language, framework, or BI tool. There’s no need to install any additional bespoke packages.

You'll can createAPI_KEYfrom Cartup AI UI console.

Cartup AI will support any application that is able to make a web request. The API has been tested to support C#, Go, Java, Javascript, Python.

Cartup AI requests must include your API key, which is available from the Cartup AI UI console. Cartup AI does not store API keys so make a note of it once you generate one. You can revoke and generate new keys at any time through the console.

Keys are subject to limits based on your plan. These include which services you can access, monthly request quotas, and rate limits.

    "description": "Search APIs for search suggestions and results",
    "version": "0",
    "cost": 1

HTTP Code: 400 Message: Not Acceptable

    "errMsg": "No active services. Please consult your adminstrator",

You can also query for details of a specific Service by sending a GET request instead of a POST request:

Note that Cartup AI always provides the latest version of its services. If your results look different over time it’s likely because we’ve upgraded the core technology. You can check via this endpoint to see when it was last updated (last_date) and what version Engine is being provided (version).

Free trials are not subject to any Service Level Agreement. In general we aim for 99.9% uptime.
