What is an API?

An API allows Third Party Applications to connect to Wisenet via an interface. The available fields that can be accessed and grouped into entities are referred to as Endpoints. Each Endpoint represents a different set of data and can be called as required to send and receive data.

How to use the Wisenet API

The Wisenet API is a RESTful web service. It can be used to:

  • Obtain data from Wisenet to populate a 3rd party application
    • Populate a separate internal employee tracking application
  • Complete a customised online enrolment application from your Website into Wisenet
  • Send new data to Wisenet
    • A new student enrolment from a CRM system
  • Update existing data in Wisenet
    • Update unit enrolment details from an external system


  • In September 2018 Wisenet released a beta version of a new API named Wisenet API. This became live in December 2018. The Wisenet API is a complete rewrite and is designed to replace the now named OLD API. While we will be keeping the OLD API active for at least a year, it will no longer be updated.
  • The Wisenet API requires a specific license that is costed separately to the standard Wisenet LRM license. Please contact Wisenet Support for access.
  • Wisenet can provide a testing environment to allow you to play with the API before you go-live.
