The API is a set of methods that enable you to use code to perform operations on system objects, such as Lists and Folders. The methods for each type of object enable you to extend your system's capabilities and integrate the system with third party applications.
Methods send and respond to requests sent from third party systems, automate repetitive operations, or directly perform other operations on objects in your system, such as adding and deleting.
