UiTdatabank provides 2 Entry API’s that can be used for specific cases and are interchangeable: you can create an offer with the JSON-LD CRUD API and update a specific property of this offer with the JSON-LD API.
With the JSON-LD API you can mimick the entry form on uitdatabank.be to create and update an offer. With this API it is possible to update specific properties from existing offers, like adding a French translation for the
description of an event or adding a label to a place.
- Create an offer with only the mandatory properties (what, where, when…)
- Incrementally update specific properties of an offer
- Publish your event by updating the workflowstatus from “draft” to “ready for validation”

JSON-LD CRUD API
With the JSON-LD CRUD API you create a JSON-LD document for an entire offer and send it as a whole to UiTdatabank, instead of sending updates for every property.
Offers created via the JSON-LD CRUD API are instantly published with workflowstatus “Ready for validation”, so you don’t have to manually publish each event like with the JSON-LD API. Specific trusted partners can get the permission to import events with workflowstatus “Approved”, thus bypassing the validation by UiTdatabank admins.
