FAQ

What is re.alto?

re.alto is a marketplace for digital energy products and services, delivered via APIs. You can register as a Provider or a Consumer. As a Consumer, you can search for APIs from a wide range of energy sectors and subscribe in a simple online process.

What is an API ?

“Application Programming Interface” or API is an interface that connects different components, such as applications with data from hardware or user interface. In building applications, an API simplifies programming by abstracting the underlying implementation and only exposing objects or actions the developer requires.  

Is re.alto a reseller of digital products?

No, re.alto is not a reseller of digital products.  Each product Provider lists his specific terms and conditions as well as the applicable pricing for the use of the product. The commercial agreement is between the Provider and Consumer.  

Can I transfer my existing product subscriptions to re.alto?

Yes. If you want to have one central module to manage all your subscriptions, you can transfer your existing subscriptions to re.alto. Please contact us so we can arrange the setup for you and your product provider.  

How do I subscribe to an API?

Simply search for an API you’d like to connect to. On the details page you’ll be able to submit a subscription request. Once the request is received, you’ll be asked to sign the API Provider’s legal terms and pricing terms (if applicable). Once the API Provider accepts your subscription request, you’ll receive a subscription token and be able to use the API.

Which API formats are supported?

Our platform is compatible with web-based (HTTP), ideally REST, APIs. SOAP is also supported.  We currently do not support message queues or other binary formats.

How do I call an API using my subscription token?

Follow the guidelines outlined within the specific API’s documentation regarding endpoints and parameters. For authentication/authorisation all requests made to a specific API must include the subscription token in the header. The header key must be “Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key” with the value being the subscription token. 

I have a requirement for an API I cannot find on the Marketplace
