This IBM Incentive Compensation Management API allows you to develop integrated applications.

The API allows Incentive Compensation Management modules to be available or linked into an existing program to complete the required tasks. The API uses HTTP verbs and a RESTful endpoint structure. Request and response payloads are formatted as JSON.

The intent of this API section is to provide client organizations that want to access Incentive Compensation Management in a programmatic way with an interoperable option. Some common uses include the following scenarios:

  • Client organizations that want to retrieve calculated or statistical data from Incentive Compensation Management for use in other downstream applications, such as portal applications, reporting, or other systems.
  • Client organizations that want to leverage web services to more tightly integrate systems.
  • Client organizations that want to programatically trigger Incentive Compensation Management with existing third-party scheduling or application management software.
  • Partner ogranizations that want to integrate their solution more closely with Incentive Compensation Management.

The previous scenarios involve querying Incentive Compensation Management, retrieving data from the system, updating data within the system, and adding data to the system.
