The SortSpoke API is a RESTful API that allows you to access features of SortSpoke using standard methods.  

The core functionality of the SortSpoke API is to upload PDF documents and download JSON output files. This document describes some of the common use cases and provides you the resources for integrating SortSpoke into your app.

Also, we have made a Postman Collection of the calls for you to try as well.  You can find it here:

​SortSpoke Postman

What is Postman?

Postman is a powerful HTTP client for testing web services. Postman makes it easy to test, develop and document APIs by allowing users to quickly put together both simple and complex HTTP requests.

Postman can be downloaded here.

June 2021 Changes to Document Status Codes

SortSpoke has made some updates to the Document Status Codes.

These updates to the Document Status Codes are intended to make their meaning easier to understand and lay the groundwork for innovative new features. We do not expect these changes to impact most users.

If you are using SortSpoke only via the web interface and do not use the API or RPA connectors, no action is required.

If you have API or RPA integrations with SortSpoke that rely on checking the status of documents in Status Codes 2 to 6, then the meanings of these status codes have changed slightly. We would be happy to walk through the changes with you and assess whether any action is required. If you are only checking for status 1, 7 or 8, then no changes are required.

Full details can be found here.
