Getting started with the MCE API

The first step is to create a free trial account. This will create a demonstration site for you, with a small set of data, to allow you to start to explore the overall data structure and how the API methods work

You can access this trial site from the MCE Login page using our standard dashboard solution. You will find your Read-Only API key in this dashboard if you want to make your data accessible to third parties. This dashboard includes:

The Set up part of the dashboard gives full control to set up all parts of the system

  • Create, edit and delete Sites, Groups, Sub Groups and Items
  • Create, edit and delete new Units, Conversions and Costs
  • Create, edit and delete Targets
  • Apply calculations for CALC, HCALC, LCALC, TARGET and COST
  • Assign Items to Sub Groups to simplify presentation of data
  • Update password
  • Access Real Only API code

Parts of the API use GET methods and so can be executed from a browser but some use POST methods which cannot. There is a complete set of API methods in the MCE API Documentation link.
