Introduction

The Teachfloor API is organized around REST. Our API has predictable resource-oriented URLs, accepts form-encoded request bodies, returns JSON-encoded responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes, authentication, and verbs.

Base URL

https://api.teachfloor.com

Authenticating requests

This API is authenticated by sending an Authorization header with the value "Bearer {YOUR_API_KEY}".

All authenticated endpoints are marked with a requires authentication badge in the documentation below.

You can retrieve your API Key in Settings > Integrations and clicking Generate API Key.

Rate Limiting

Example response:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
X-RateLimit-Limit:	50
X-RateLimit-Remaining:	48

Teachfloor API has a rate limit of 50 requests per minute per API Key.

Each HTTP response includes headers indicating the rate limit status: X-RateLimit-Limit specifies the rate limit per minute, and X-RateLimit-Remaining indicates the remaining rate limit available.

Courses

Requires Authentication

Search for existing courses in your organization. You can search by course name. The search is case-insensitive and supports partial matches.

}"
$client = new \GuzzleHttp\Client();
$response = $client->get(
    'https://api.teachfloor.com/v0/courses/search',
    [
        'headers' => [

Webhooks

Teachfloor uses webhooks to notify your application when an event happens in your account. Webhooks are particularly useful for asynchronous events like when a new member joins a course, a member has completed an element, or when a course is updated.

You can start receiving event notifications by adding your own webhook endpoint in Developers > Webhooks and clicking on Add Endpoint.

Webhook Retries

Teachfloor webhooks have built-in retry methods for 3xx, 4xx, or 5xx response status codes. If Teachfloor doesn’t quickly receive a 2xx response status code for an event, we will retry calling the webhook after 10 seconds. If that second attempt fails, we will attempt to call the webhook a final time after 100 seconds.

Webhook Signature


Signature verification example:

/**
 * Generate the signature using the signing
 * secret and the webhook content
 */
$generatedSignature = hash_hmac('sha256', $request->getContent(), $webhookSigningSecret);

/**
 * Compare the generated signature with the received
 * Teachfloor-Signature header to determine if the
 * webhook event is legit
 */
if ($generatedSignature !== $headerSignature) {
  /**
   * Verification failed
   */
  return false;
}

/**
 * Legit event, use the webhook content...
 */

Teachfloor will sign the webhook events it sends to your endpoints by including a signature in each event’s Teachfloor-Signature header. This allows you to verify that the events were sent by Teachfloor, not by a third party.

To verify the webhook event signatures, you need to retrieve your endpoint’s secret from your Webhook Endpoints settings. Select an endpoint that you want to obtain the secret for, then click the Reveal Signing Secret button.

Signatures are generated using a hash-based message authentication code (HMAC) with SHA-256. Use the endpoint’s signing secret as the key, convert the event payload to json format and use it as the message in your HMAC-SHA256 function. Compare the generated signature with the received Teachfloor-Signature header to determine if the webhook event is legit.
