For the data lovers, the munging maniacs, and those who prefer to draw their own conclusions, we now have an open API for EventBoard Insights so you can merge EventBoard data into your data warehouse for internal reporting purposes. Because sometimes what you really want is for your data scientists to spend a day alone with our data.  

Here’s what you need to know.

Who can access the Insights API?

The Insights API is available to all customers subscribing to the EventBoard premium plan. (Read more about our plan levels.)

Once you’re on the premium plan, anyone on your team who you want to leverage the API will need to be an EventBoard user. If they’re not, they’ll receive an error when trying to get data from the API.

Once I’m a user, how do I access the Insights API?

  • Log in to EventBoard’s developer portal: https://app.eventboard.io/developers/
  • Click on Insights API Docs.
  • You’ll then see the Insights documentation link.
  • Expand it to get the full documentation.

What can we do with this data?

Anything you want.

The documentation shows what data is available (there’s a lot of it), so take a look at that. And then, as Francis of Assisi said: “Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible; suddenly you are doing the impossible.”

We’re working hard to re-do our Insights content and make it more relevant for you, so check back often. And as always, feel free to reach out and share what you’ve learned.
