Community API

The Onboard Community API provides access to a rich set of local information including; population, education, ancestry, crime, commute times and weather. Websites utilizing this data gain a competitive edge by helping their users understand the nuances of the area.













What's new in 2.0

Notable changes to the API include the change to the base URL structure and updated security.



URL Structure


V1 URL Structure

http://api.ist_prod.obiwebservices.com/Community/Area/Full/?&AreaId=NH0031106&AccessToken= 


V2 URL Structure

https://search.onboard-apis.com/communityapi/v2.0.0/area/full?AreaId=CO44003


Updated Security


Users are no longer required to include their "AccessToken" in the URL request. Instead you'll need to include your APIKey in the request header.


Other Changes


V1 required users to include either mime=xml or mime=json in their URL string to indicate the type of response requested. This is still supported in V2. However, a user can also choose to set "Accept" to either application/json or application/xml in the header to receive the same result.
