Create User and Race API Extensions

RunSignUp APIWarning: This is for developers.

We have extended our OpenAPI to allow for Race and User Creation and editing.

This API is being used by a couple of advanced users who have their own applications that have a need for creating races and users outside of the RunSignUp user interface. This is a powerful capability that allows a great deal of flexibility for other software applications who want to take advantage of RunSignUp’s powerful capabilities across areas like participant management, results, notifications, etc.

These API’s require additional security measures as we need to protect unauthorized use or attack. Please contact us to discuss why you need access to these API’s and we can give you the proper levels of authorization. You can get a testing account for via self serve here. Note that other API calls are available with a self serve authorization.

In other API news, we have added caching to OAuth. This increases performance for some of our technical partners who have high volume needs, as well as provides a fast experience for users with our technology partner systems.
