Legacy SOAP API¶
This API is deprecated and customers are currently being migrated away from it.
For this API you need a set of credentials. These are different from the API Keys the REST API uses. You can find them in the dashboard, under settings.
The API is compatible with the old Nimta API, so in order to switch from the NIMTA Messaging Gateway to GatewayAPI, you can simply switch the SOAP endpoint and update your credentials etc, but not otherwise change anything.
We still strongly recommend the new APIs such as the REST API, because that is the API we will focus on going forward.
Compared to the SOAP API, the REST offers¶
- Improved security, incl. replay attack protection
- SMS Tags
- Message priority selection
- User specified tracking references
- Improved performance
How to switch¶
