Data API

Arcadia Enterprise provides an interface for applications that fetch data using a REST interface.

Typically, users access Arcadia’s web server through a web browser, and the interface is entirely visual. This visual interface interacts directly with Arcadia’s data layer, which in turn provides seamless access to modeled data, integrated security controls, fast access to data in connected systems, and access to advanced analytics.

Sometimes, operational data applications do not need access to Arcadia’s visual layer, but require direct access to the data layer. For these purposes, Arcadia supports a Data API that provides operational data applications with direct access to data.

See the following sections for more information about the Data API interface.
