What does the MeasureOne API do?
The MeasureOne API enables developers to integrate consumer-permissioned data into their applications. The API provides functionality to access, retrieve, process and deliver the consented user data. The API provides service endpoints that provide insights into the retrieved data. These services endpoints are usually the main interfaces for applications.
What types of user data do you support?
We currently support education, income, insurance, and employment data.
What types of service endpoints does the API provide?
We provide verification services, predictive analytics, data summaries, and more. We regularly add new service endpoints. Please refer to the full documentation for the latest details.
What is the difference between source data and consented user data?
The underlying documents that we retrieve on behalf of the user are called source data. This source data is not shared in raw form with the consuming application unless the user has consented to this. The consuming application typically will access the information through API endpoints that provide data services, e.g., verification or summaries, based on these documents.
Do you store the source data?
Yes. We store the source data on behalf of the user, but as described above only share the elements of it of which the user has consented.
What types of source data do you support?
We support a wide variety of source data types including transcripts, earnings statements, paystubs, employment records, student profiles and others. For the complete list please refer to the API documentation.
Is the source data made available in digitized form?
Yes. Part of the power of our platform is its ability to parse and extract the data from the source data and make it available for processing in digital (JSON) form.
How does the user provide their consent and credentials to start the process of consumer-permissioning?
The user provides their consent through the embeddable MeasureOne LINK widget that initiates the consumer permissioning process. LINK allows you to quickly get started with the integration.
Is LINK required?
Yes. Acquiring consumer-permissioned data is a complex process. LINK hides this complexity from your application so that you can focus on the integration of consumer-permissioned data within your application.
How can I try MeasureOne and consumer-permissioned data?
Our API keys will give you access to a sandbox environment that enables you to perform a test integration with simulated and real data.
Do you support hosted solutions that do not require code integrations?
Yes. We support hosted solutions that combine a user invitation system with email delivery of our service endpoints, eliminating the requirement for code-level integration.
I have a need for data types and information that you currently don’t support. Can you help me with this?
Yes. We do this regularly both internally and for our customers. Our system is built to rapidly add new data types and data sources. Please contact us with your requirements and we’ll be happy to help you.
