Spotware Connect is an open API that allows third-party service providers to leverage the cTrader suite of platforms.
The open API consists of two big parts:
The API is open for everyone with no restrictions. It supports any trading account of any cTrader supported broker.
Spotware Connect Open API is completely FREE. To start using it you just have to apply for your own Partner's Credentials (OAuth Public Client ID and Client Secret, for more details see OAuth Services Description section of this guide).
To get your Partner Credentials and start using the Open API you have to create a new App:
Fill in fields for your app like on an example
After submitting the app you will see your credentials.
The Name, Description and Logo will be displayed to your users at the moment when they will be asked for permissions for their trading accounts by your service.
If you have just started your development with the Open API we strictly recommend you to do it with our Sandbox version of the API.
The Sandbox version is a fully-functional version of the API which is just a copy of the Live version. It was created to let you develop your product safely with no care about affecting anyone else.
Once you have finished your integration and would like to switch to the Live API please read the corresponding article "How to Go Live" of this guide.
See next chapter "Open API Reference: Getting Started" to learn how to start working with the Open API.
