An API is simply a URL that represents your data as an object or a collection of objects.
The Overview section gives you descriptions of certain basic concepts.
In each of the following sections, when you click Test Method, the app gives you a URL to call the API with a preview of your data in JSON format, as shown in the stats section below.
In the /v1/report/dataset section, you can view your dataset from a specific crawl run, which you can select from the dropdown in the
history_id form field.
The /v1/report/dataset/time section gives you similar functionality as mentioned above, with the added capability of specifying time frames.
The /v1/report/stats section gives you the overall stats for the current report, as shown above.
If you haven’t activated your JSON feed yet, you’ll see an Activate JSON button.
Once you activate, the app gives you a URL to your JSON data with a preview below it.
Through RSS feeds, you can keep track of your data as they’re being scraped by the app.
Once you fill out the form and update your feed, content at your end will be updated in real-time as our crawler gathers each record.
For each of the Item Title, Item Description, Item Link and Category fields, select the relevant column names from the dropdown.
Furthermore, you can toggle between the form’s Normal and Advanced modes clicking the button at the form’s top right corner.
