This section describes how to use the W2 RESTful API
The W2 REST API uses basic authentication. You will need to add a basic authorization header with your api key base 64 encoded to all requests.
|Header Key||Header Pattern|
To call a specific version of the API append the API version query option to the end of the URL like this: https://api.w2globaldata.com/kyc-check?api-version=1.1
We strongly recommend that you provide a version number with all of your requests. A request without a version number will default to the latest version of the API so you might experience changes you are not prepared for.
HTTP Status Codes
The W2 RESTful API closely adheres to the standard use of HTTP status codes. You can expect to find one of the following status codes in your response data.
|Http Response||Http Statuscode||Description|
|Retrieved (OK)||200||A 200 response indicates that the request has succeeded and the resource has been retrieved.|
|Created||201||An 201 response indicates that the request has succeeded and a resource was created.|
|OK No Content||204||A 204 response indicates that the request has succeeded and there was nothing to return.|
|Bad Request||400||A Bad request response indicates that due to invalid properties provided, the server was unable to process the request.|
|Unauthorised||401||An unauthorised response suggests that missing valid authentication and therefore the request could not be processed.|
|Forbidden||403||A forbidden error suggests that the server understands the request however authorization is denied. Please contact our support team in order to gain access.|
|Not Found||404||A not found error suggests the resource does not exist.|
|Internal Server Error||500||An Internal server error suggests that there is a problem with the server. Please contact our support team.|
