Data.gov.au has built-in capabilities to enable custodians processes in automating the publication of datasets through either:
- Harvesting of own government portal (see Harvested Portals)
- Utilising the API
Contact the support team at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss setting up a harvest schedule.
Documentation on the API can be found within the official CKAN API documentation as this is the Data Management System data.gov.au is built upon.
Before commencing your own development of an application to hook into our API, it is recommended to do the following:
- Retrieve API Key – Found within Account > Manage
- Manually publish the dataset once to retrieve the URL address
Basic examples of various applications utilising the API can be found on our GitHub page
