Overview

The CoboCards API consists of a set of callable methods, and some API endpoints.
To perform an action using the CoboCards API, you need to select a calling convention, send a request to its endpoint specifying a method and some arguments, and will receive a formatted response. All requests take a list of named parameters.

  • The required parameter method is used to specify the calling method.
  • The required parameter api_key is used to specify your API Key.
  • The optional parameter format is used to specify a response format.

The arguments, responses and error codes for each method are listed on the method's spec page.

Note: The CoboCards API exposes identifiers for users, sets, cards and other uniquely identifiable objects. These IDs should always be treated as strings [varchar(11)], rather than integers of any specific type. The format of the IDs can change over time, so relying on the current format may cause you problems in the future.
