The purpose of the REST API is to get data out of ThoughtSpot so you can use it in a Web page, portal, or application. When using the REST API, authentication is achieved through SAML.
REST API Capabilities
Use a POST method to access the URL, which calls the REST API. The data is returned as a JSON string. When using this method, you'll need to extract the data from the JSON file and render it on your Web page, portal, or application.
- Generate dynamic picklists on your Web page.
- Display a single value.
- Retrieve the data to populate a visualization drawn by your own renderer.
Remember that the data you retrieve from ThoughtSpot is live data, so whenever the Web page is rendered, the current value(s) will be shown.
