Using the API
[This is a stub; more to come later--although the instructions on your actual api page should be accurate]
If you have the API enabled in Admin > Site Config, you should be able to point your browser to the root of the API folder and see some instructions on how you use it. Note that you will need your API key (also found in Admin > Site Config) in order to make an api request.
This api page will be found somewhere like www.youruniversity.edu/sp/api/
