Access to web services restricted

Postby RossEvans » Tue Mar 08, 2011 10:35 am

Just to put some closure on the question raised at the top of this thread, we now have authoritative wordthat going forward, access to the LDS Account-authenticated web services will be restricted to officially sponsored Community apps.

If you're going to "block" it for others than I suggest using an internal API key structure like any other oAuth application. Or get rid of this URL:

https://lds.org/directory/services/ludrs/1.1?_wadl&_type=xml

Every endpoint to access all data related to the LDS account via API...

I still think you should have a limited version available to third parties, but that's my 2c.
