Features & Benefits

The API Directory streamlines the process for requesting institutional data access. It is approved for sensitive data APIs, including data containing Personal Health Information (PHI) and data regulated by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

Subscribe to an API

U-M developers and researchers may subscribe applications to more than 20 APIs by joining a developer organization in the directory. New developer organizations may be requested when needed.

U-M students, temporary staff, and alumni need to be sponsored by an U-M department to use the API Directory. Contact the API team for more information.

Publish an API

Data owners who are interested in opening data for use by one or more developers may request to publish an API in the directory. As an API publisher, you will have tools to audit use, grant or deny access requests, and automate roll-on and -off processes. You also have options to create an unlisted API that is accessible only by request.
