Code Samples

PHP (using REST API)


The rest of this document describes the example above, step-by-step.

In our Getting Started section we covered the four important components of an API request; URL, method, headers, and body.


Let's analyse the code sample above to determine where each line fits into this outline.

1. Load the Everlytic API

The following line of code tells the server which API URL to access for the request:

$url = '(Your URL)/api/2.0/email_actions/emails/:email_id';

2. Method

In this line of code, you tell the API which REST function to use:

$method = ‘GET’;

3. cURL

cURL is a tool for sending and receiving files from a web server. This line of code initialises the cURL session.

$cSession = curl_init();

4. Initiate the headers

This section of the code opens the headers section and passes the authentication (including your API key).

$headers = array();

$auth = base64_encode($username . ':' . $apikey);

$headers[] = 'Authorization: Basic ' . $auth;

5. Set various cURL options for the session

The first line uses the $url to get your specified url
The second line returns the string (text) of the return value.
The third line tells the server not to include the header in the ouput.
The fourth line calls the $method specified above.

curl_setopt($cSession, CURLOPT_URL, $url);

curl_setopt($cSession, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);

curl_setopt($cSession, CURLOPT_HEADER, false);

curl_setopt($cSession, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, strtoupper($method));

6. Headers

Call the headers using the $headers method.

curl_setopt($cSession, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);

7. Output the API response to test authentication

$result = curl_exec($cSession);

8. Close the cURL session
