In order to start using the API you will first need a valid SurveyTown account (sign up for a free trial or paid SurveyTown account). Once your account is created, login and create an API key by going to Settings > API Key.
Once that is done you can access the REST API via the following URL:
Here's an example using the Survey_Find call to find all of your currently active Surveys:
NOTE: API calls that contain non-required variables, the optional parameters are added to the URL using the string "optionalParameters" with the parameter name inside the bracket  and then it equaling a value.
Our keys are assigned to users. When you sign up for a SurveyTown account, your username is considered the first user, is permanent and has all permissions. Other users can be assigned a subset of permissions and any API keys assigned to that user will be limited by the permission constraints of that user. For example if a user in the application was limited to seeing just the reporting of certain surveys then any API Key created for that user would also be limited to seeing just those survey reports.
Webhooks allow you to receive real-time updates for various events that occur within your SurveyTown account. When these events trigger, we'll call a web-accessible URL you specify and tell you what happened.
To set up your webhooks, log into your account and go to Settings -> Webhooks. Here you can set up the events you wish to receive alerts about and under which conditions these events were triggered. Our system will then send these webhook alerts via HTTP POST at a URL that you provide.
