Edge - API Explorer

All REST API documentation is available within Edge Develop. The API Explorer enables developers and partners to easily learn and share ways to optimize the system by reading and contributing information regarding various CSOD applications.

Important: Cornerstone's legacy API authentication framework for APIs, Session Token Service (STS), is scheduled for end-of-life which is targeted to occur with the February '21 Release.

To access the API Explorer, go to Admin > Tools > Edge and click the API Explorer link.

API Explorer

All the content for applications and features related to REST APIs is available within the API Explorer. Select a resource from the navigation menu on the left side of the page, or enter a search term in the Search bar and click the Enter button on your keyboard to receive relevant documentation results.

Public Access to API Explorer

To access the API Explorer independently of a Cornerstone portal, go to: https://apiexplorer.csod.com/apiconnectorweb/apiexplorer#/

Generic documentation for existing Edge APIs is available from this URL. From the publicly accessible API Explorer page, users with access to an Edge portal can log into their Edge accounts, which redirects them to the Edge Marketplace, provided they have the associated permission. If an anonymous user attempts to try or purchase an API, they are directed to the Edge login screen and prompted to log in.
