EGA Rest API
Welcome to the EGA API Submitter V1 Guide documentation. If you are attempting to undertake a Programmatic submission using REST you might consider exploring the following documentation regarding API usage, metadata retrieval, validation and submission, as well as input formats and further details.
The EGA API enables you to tap into EGA and build your own EGA-powered applications for your necessities.
Every API endpoint is built on the top of our Micro Service Architecture, which powers our web and desktop interfaces. This guarantees the quality of our API. The API provides a simple, predictable, standardized, resource-oriented, RESTful interface with JSON-formatted responses to use EGA features, including creation, editing, deleting and the validation of objects / entire projects. We embrace built-in HTTP features, so our API is easily managed with off-the-shelf HTTP clients. Every request to the EGA API can be easily performed using the curl command line tool.
