RESTful API: Build your own custom integrations
Does your team have another tool in your project management belt? If so, ask your favorite developer to build a custom integration using TeamGantt’s public RESTful API! 💪
Use the API to complete CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) actions between TeamGantt and your app. Here's the TeamGantt data that’s available to integrate:
- Groups of tasks
- Task dependencies
- Task resources
- Tracked time
How to use TeamGantt’s RESTful API
Getting started with TeamGantt’s public API is simple! Here’s how it works:
- First, generate a bearer token for your app by going to Account Settings > Configure API Access (beta) or by clicking here.
- Next, visit our API documentation.
Right now, our API is in beta testing. So just keep in mind that some things could change before it’s all said and done. Of course, that also means you get to have a say in how this integration takes shape. If you’ve got any feedback about our API, we'd love to hear it!
