Introducing Jet APIs

By Victoria Burt | Dec 6, 2019

Many organizations struggle with the same problem – there are simple, repetitive tasks that someone has to manually execute on a regular basis as part of a process or workflow (such as production teams uploading dailies or video game developers sending game builds out for testing). That manual approach can often cause a drop in productivity or simply a frustrating backlog, which ultimately makes it harder for other members of an organization to do their jobs, access the files they need, or simply remain on the same page with regards to major projects.

But, it doesn’t have to be this way. When it comes to these tasks, there are new tools that make it easy to automate recurring tasks that are now accessible to any-sized businesses.

Signiant Jet was developed for just that purpose –  to make it easy for any sized business to automate recurring file transfers, and now, with the introduction of the Jet APIs, media companies can now go even further to automate processes and integrate Jet into their existing workflows. 

Jet APIs simplify recurring tasks and complex workflows

Using the API, jobs can now be created programmatically. Once the job is created, files that are placed in the associated source folder (either manually or via a process) will automatically transfer to the destination folder. Integrators can also use the API to delete jobs, view job details, view all endpoints, and more. By offering customizable, flexible, transparent, and lightning-fast system-to-system automation, Jet aims to simplify how automated transfers are managed and executed. Automation and acceleration together make for a formidable combination!

Jet APIs join the exciting slate of new features designed to enhance convenience, ensure security, and save time – including easy file-system-browse, a connection testing tool, real-time error reporting, and support of custom transfer IPs for use on private networks and more (read more about these features, here).

In the future, as we continue to introduce new Jet features and enhancements, additional APIs will be released, which will continue to focus on helping admins automate Jet functionality within everyday workflows.

If you’re interested in building Jet APIs into your workflows, you can find more details including how to get started on the Signiant Developer site
