Web Services API Overview

The Web Services API feature enables software developers to integrate Track-It! and other applications or custom utilities in your organization. The API can be used to perform various actions for Work Orders and assets such as creating Work Orders and searching for Work Orders created through other interfaces, and getting an asset by asset name or number. An XML JSON RESTful Web Service interface to BMC Track-It! is available for all platforms for integration with other applications. It supports .NET 4.0.  Functions are available for creating Issues, updating Issues and querying the database for Work Orders.

Note: For Web Services API, a new virtual directory is automatically created by the Track-It! installer.

The Track-It! Web API log is available in the following directory: C:\windows\temp.

The Track-It! Web Service API supports the following actions.  Click each link for API call details and examples:
