API to build your own integrations

Alis is a modern, cloud based Quality Management platform that is designed to fit into a bigger IT infrastructure.

Our API lets you develop your own integrations. Think about integrating your QMS with your ERP, MES, PLM, instruments, sensors or website.

Bi directional integration with our API


The Alis API is based on JSON over HTTPS GET/POST.

Since the Alis data model is fully customizable, users can create their own forms and workflows, the API is dynamic as well. Alis offers a dynamic API documentation in the application. This dynamic documentation describes all parameters and fields in great detail, including request and response examples.

System integration by JSON over HTTPS



The Alis API uses tokens for authentication (authToken). All tokens are linked to exactly one user account. Every user account can have multiple tokens. Permissions for tokens are derived from the related user group. This allows for very granular permission management per integration.

Workflows and webhooks

To support bi-directional integrations, the user defined workflows can call webhooks. These webhooks enable you to trigger processes, both within Alis or in external systems. The payload in these webhook calls is user defined and can contain all fields from the Alis process forms, as well as any other static values.
