This page describes how to use the Census API to manage your connections and syncs.
The Census API lets you integrate core bits of Census's functionality right into your workflows. You can view information about your connections and syncs, as well as create and trigger syncs. Each endpoint returns a status field and either a data object or a single value providing context on what was requested.
Tables that include Response Property detail the results of the entire response. Tables that include Data Property detail the returned data housed in the top level data attribute of the response. Tables that include Attributes detail relevant bits of info for nested objects used in requests.

Each Census organization has its own API key. You can access it within the Settings page by visiting the API tab.

The Census API uses basic authentication to provide API credentials. When accessing the Census API, provide the following credentials using your client library or preferred tool:
