PrintReleaf API v1.6.2

Introduction

The PrintReleaf API is organized around REST to have predictable, resource-oriented URLs, and uses HTTP response codes to indicate API errors.

It uses built-in HTTP features, like HTTP authentication and HTTP verbs, which are understood by off-the-shelf HTTP clients. JSON is returned in all responses from the API, including errors, and is expected as the body for all requests.

Conventions

  • All data is sent and received as JSON
  • All resource IDs are UUID strings
  • Blank fields are included as null instead of being omitted
  • All timestamps are returned in ISO 8601 format: YYYY-MM-DDTHH:MM:SSZ
  • All units are metric: m for units of length; m2 for area; g for mass; g/m2 for density
  • A period refers to all days within a single month

Access Patterns

Accounts in PrintReleaf are hierarchical, meaning every account can have one parent account and an arbitrary number of child accounts. Each account has a role that determines its abilities.

By default, all resources of the Core API are scoped to your account. The same resources can be accessed for any of your child accounts:

Default Scope: /biomass/offsets
/biomass/offsets/:id
Account Scope: /accounts/:account_id/biomass/offsets
/accounts/:account_id/biomass/offsets/:id

API Endpoint

https://api.printreleaf.com/v1/

Authentication

You authenticate to the PrintReleaf API by including your API keys in the request. You can manage your API keys from your PrintReleaf Dashboard.

Authentication to the PrintReleaf API is performed via HTTP Basic Auth. Provide your API key as the basic auth username value. You do not need to provide a password.

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail. API requests without authentication will also fail.

# Example Request
$ curl https://api.printreleaf.com/v1/ -u c7686125c49022c9fd3f9662bd2a8:
# curl uses the -u flag to pass basic auth credentials (adding a colon after your API key prevents cURL from asking for a password).

Errors

The PrintReleaf API uses conventional HTTP response codes to indicate success or failure of an API request. In general, codes in the 2xx range indicate success, codes in the 4xx range indicate an error that resulted from the provided information (e.g. a required parameter was missing, etc.), and codes in the 5xx range indicate an error with PrintReleaf's servers.

HTTP Status Code Summary

  • 200 OK - Everything worked as expected.
  • 400 Bad Request - Invalid or missing request parameters.
  • 401 Unauthorized - Invalid API key.
  • 403 Forbidden - API keys were provided but the requested action is not authorized.
  • 404 Not Found - The requested resource doesn't exist.
  • 429 Too Many Requests - Rate limit exceeded.
  • 5xx Server errors - Something went wrong on our end.

The Error Object

code:
integer Indicates the type of error.
error:
string A human-readable message giving more details about the error.
// Example Error Object
{
  "code": 404,
  "error": "Object not found"
}

Getting Started

The PrintReleaf API employs two usage models that can be used independently or in combination:

Biomass Offsets

Biomass Offsets are realtime exchanges of paper consumption for reforested trees.

When creating a biomass offset, you have the option to:

  1. Provide the number of sheets of paper consumed; or
  2. Provide the number of trees to be reforested; or
  3. Provide a quote_id to execute a quote to create a biomass offset

In return, when the biomass offset is created, you will immediately receive a certificate of reforestation as a receipt of the biomass offset.

This model is ideal for transactional applications; for example, a point-of-sale integration for print jobs.

Using Biomass Offsets ›

Deposits

Deposits are periodic additions of paper consumption data to an account.

Over the course of a month, you periodically add deposits to an account; for example, daily meter reads from a device, fleet, or entire business. At the end of the month, the deposits are batched and summed to determine the account's total consumption during that month. A biomass offset is then automatically created for the total consumption and the account receives a certificate of reforestation as a receipt of the biomass offset.

This model is ideal for subscription applications where an account accrues paper consumption over time to be executed as a single big biomass offset rather than many small biomass offsets.

Our integrations with third-party print monitoring software (FMAudit, PrintFleet, etc.) are powered by this deposits model. Every day our data collectors gather paper consumption data from the print monitoring software and create a deposit for the day's consumption.

Creating a biomass offset

When creating a biomass offset, you have the option to:

  1. Provide the total number of pages to be reforested; or
  2. Provide the total number of trees to be reforested; or
  3. Provide a quote_id to convert a quote to a biomass offset

Optionally provide a project_id to identify at which forestry project you would like the trees to be planted.

After the biomass offset is created, you will immediately receive a biomass certificate as a receipt of the biomass offset.

POST /biomass/offsets

Arguments

pages:
integer required Number of pages to be reforested.
trees:
float optional Number of trees to be reforested.
Conflicts with pages.
project_id:
uuid optional The project where this biomass offset's trees should be planted. If missing or null, PrintReleaf will choose a project at random.
date:
timestamp optional Date of the biomass offset.
quote_id:
uuid optional Quote identifier.
Conflicts with pages, trees, and project_id.

Returns

Returns the new biomass offset object if valid information was provided, and returns an error otherwise.

Deactivating an account

Dectivates the specified account. Deactivating an account stops data collection, effectively pausing reforestation service.

Once deactivated, users of the account will still be able to sign into their PrintReleaf account to monitor the forests they've already planted, but their account will no longer accrue reforestated pages.

No new deposits can be made to a deactivated account, all outstanding deposits made prior to deactivating the account will be processed at the end of the period as usual.

If you need to permanently delete an account, please contact support.

POST /accounts/:id/deactivate

Arguments

id:
account identifier required

Returns

Returns the updated expanded account object if valid information was provided, and returns an error otherwise.

Deposits

Deposits are periodic additions of paper consumption data to an account.

Over the course of a month, you periodically add deposits to an account; for example, daily meter reads from a device, fleet, or entire business. At the end of the month, the deposits are batched and summed to determine the account's total consumption during that month. A biomass offset is then automatically created for the total consumption and the account receives a set of certificates as a receipt of the biomass offset.
