MetaLocator.com allows you to interact via XML-RPC to perform functions including:
- Adding locations,
- Deleting locations,
- Updating locations,
- Publishing and un-publishing locations
The MetaLocator Data Management API should not be confused with the PaaS API. The PaaS API provides a RESTful JSON-based API which is designed for users creating mobile or external search applications using MetaLocator as a platform.
These functions are made available via the industry standard XML-RPC protocol.
The XML-RPC endpoint is:
You must have a valid account to access the API.
API access is only included with Platinum, Enterprise and higher accounts.
Available functions are listed in our test client.
As will all XML-RPC services, the system is self-documenting and responds to the methodSignature request with complete detail on each function call.
Each function includes documentation on our site, under the API tag.
- The API is rate limited to 500 requests per hour per IP address.
- The API is not a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution, but allows complete remote management of your data.
- Implementation of the API is subject to the MetaLocator scope of support.
