Getting Started


This document describes the handle RESTful web service, using the HTTP application protocol. The API supports the following functions

  • GET for getting the data of a selected PID
  • POST for creating a new PID with automatic generation of suffix name.

This API uses JSON as the primary exchange format. All implementations MUST be able to produce and consume JSON.
