WhiteHat Security Developer Portal

Welcome to the WhiteHat Security Developer Portal. Here you'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with WhiteHat Security APIs as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

Chaining Requests

API chaining is a technique where you programmatically make multiple API requests to perform a particular function, with each call feeding subsequent calls.

Using a REST API client, you can create a workflow that makes a request to one of the WhiteHat Security API operations, then uses the information contained in the response to make a request to different WhiteHat Security API operation. For example, using the WhiteHat Security APIs, you can create a workflow that contains API requests to:

  1. check if a name is available for a new mobile application;
  2. create the mobile application;
  3. create the scan instance, and;
  4. provide credentials for the scan.

Once this workflow is created, users can then call that workflow to make all of the API requests included in the workflow, rather than having to make each API request individually. This automation reduces the need for manual intervention, and so reduces the potential for errors to be made in the process.
