The REST API allows you to get data out of ThoughtSpot so you can embed it in a Web page, portal, or application. To access REST APIs, you must authenticate through SAML SSO. For more information on configuring SAML, see SAML SSO.
To use REST APIs, you must enable CORS and whitelist your client application domains. This protects your data, so that another website cannot use a URL to get data from ThoughtSpot. For more information on enabling Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) and whitelisting application domains, see Configure security settings.
The base URI for the REST APIs calls includes the following:
The hostname or IP address of your ThoughtSpot application instance.
API service name and version
For REST API calls, in addition to the base URI, append the API service name and the version number.
