OpenProject API

Create own integrations, retrieve data, and automate actions

To integrate own systems or plugins, access data, and automate your workflows, build with the easy-to-use OpenProject API.

OpenProject’s API is a hypermedia REST API, a shorthand for “Hypermedia As The Engine Of Application State” (HATEOAS). This means that each endpoint of this API will have links to other resources or actions defined in the resulting body.

For BIM use cases, we also offer a BCF API v2.1, targeted towards Building Information Modeling (BIM) use cases. This API builds on top of the existing OpenProject data schema.
