Monitoring APIs

Register Info

The API returns register basic info: name (if named), the total number of items in the register, number of matched items in the register, and last 1 000 register usage events

Only Population Register Centre people related basic information (e.g., name, address, deceased) is available through APIs. To use of that basic information requires permission issued by Population Register Centre. Bisnode's data elements (e.g., credit remarks, predictions) can be used without the Population Register Centre permission through APIs.

To use the API, you must have a valid environment-specific REGISTER ID and API KEY. You will get a valid REGISTER ID and API KEY from the Bisnode's Customer Service. The API KEY must be sent in the request custom header element (named: x-api-key). If the API KEY value is valid, then the API request will be successful (HTTP status code 200). Otherwise, it will fail (HTTP status code 401). All API requests must be made over HTTPS.
