How does it work?
The Mindbody Web Service API is a system for allowing third parties to programmatically access Mindbody business logic and data. Security and access are ensured through access-control measures, and accountability is tracked using an auditing system.
The API's main goal is to allow easy bi-directional integration with third-party developers. Our API is developed using industry standard technologies (XML web services, SOAP, WSDL) to allow the broadest possible compatibility with the least amount of development time for both Mindbody developers and third-party developers.
How can I make my Mindbody site look like my website?
Third-party developers like to try different ways to get Mindbody data onto business websites, like hacking the CSS in our pages (which we don't officially support), and using iFrames (which are not related to Apple and are no longer supported by Mindbody). The only truly right way to do this is through the use of our API.
For the uninitiated, the API (Application Programming Interface) is a series of web pages (called web services) that we host. Third-party developers can call these services to business websites to grab or update data in corresponding Mindbody sites. If they want to get a class schedule, then they can call a method called “GetClasses” that returns all of their class schedule's glory in XML. Developers can then manipulate the data to display however you like.
