Have we posted any of the API guides outside of the product? I'd like to be able to reference the API's w/o having to have a running instance of HCI.
The Knowledge portal has the online help for admin, search and monitor. No API docs, however.
Kind of hard to exercise the API without someone listening....no external doc at the moment.
Agreed, just need to reference, not necessarily test.
Have you checked the Knowledge portal?

For customers that are looking to integrate HCI's features with other in to other applications via API calls, what do you suggest we have them look at? Is it the Workflow documentation in the Knowledge portal? Or another document?
If they want to replace the Admin UI or portions of it they need to use Admin APIs (workflows, pipelines, index collections, etc.). If they want to search, then they use the Search APIs, namely 'query'.
I know it's been a while since this topic happened, but I was just thinking. What if we posted the documentation to Github, and allowed for the community to suggest updates to the documentation as they used it? It might just open it up for some great input from the community and continual improvement for our documentation.
The purpose of a shared repo like GitHub is to make edits. Not sure if a developer who is making edits hasn't already downloaded and installed the product, so they have access to the API already. If you are suggesting they recommend changes to the API well to do so would require them to use it first (presumably) which means they've downloaded it as well.
