Bronto’s API is designed so that developers can complete nearly all of the tasks available in the platform in a programmatic way. Our API includes both SOAP and REST web services, but not every function or call is available in both languages. Instead, you will need to work with either SOAP or REST depending on what you are trying to accomplish. In this section we explain how to know whether you need to use SOAP or REST, introduce the basics of our API, and provide some best practices.
