Vembu Online Data Backup Expert Tips: SyncBlaze Update – APIs, Unicode Character Support and More

Here comes SyncBlaze with a release update that includes some enhancements on the tray, APIs and unicode character support.

Getting started with the SyncBlaze APIs

We are in the process of building our repository of APIs that will add value to our partners and help them integrate SyncBlaze into their system. We kick started with the APIs to support account provisioning and extracting data usage information.

These APIs enables you to programmatically enable access to SyncBlaze, specifically, the API provides functions for the following modules:

Login - The login API performs authentication of users and then returns the validation to allows users to login into their account

Registration – The registration API is used to add resellers under administrator account, customers under the reseller account and users under the customer account

Data Usage – The Data Usage API is used to fetch the details of the total space allotted and used by a customer/user account. The details of the used space of individual users can be saved as a CSV file in a preferred location.

You can access the complete guide to learn more about the APIs in SyncBlaze here.

API Templates – The API templates will be available in the installation location after upgrading to the latest version or it can be download from here.

Template Location: ROOT/APITemplates

Unicode Character Support

Earlier we were supporting western european languages (Latin-1 character set) but now as the geography of our partners are getting wider and wider, we have included the support for UTF-8 character set which covers most of the languages. Now you can make sure that you can upload files in any name and in any language, the remaining will be take care by us.
