    Welcome to the FullContact API reference documentation. The information below will guide you as you build your applications and integrations utilizing the FullContact API.

    The FullContact API uses an RPC-style interface. All requests sent to the API are done over HTTPS using the POST method, with content sent as JSON in the request body.

    As you navigate through the available endpoints, you will find sample code to the right in various popular languages. In most cases, you should be able to simply copy and paste this code and change the {Your API Key} string to match your actual API key to try out the endpoint. If you encounter any difficulties or have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at support@fullcontact.com.

    Authentication

    Sending your API Key in the Authorization Header

    curl -X POST https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich \
     -H 'Authorization: Bearer {Your API Key}'
    
    var fetch = require('node-fetch');
    
    fetch('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich',{
        method: 'POST',
        headers: {
            "Authorization": "Bearer {Your API Key}"
        }
    });
    
    import urllib2
    
    req = urllib2.Request('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich')
    req.add_header('Authorization', 'Bearer {Your API Key}')
    response = urllib2.urlopen(req)
    
    require 'rest-client'
    
    response = RestClient.post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich",
      {
        :authorization => "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      })
    
    import org.apache.http.client.fluent.Request;
    
    Request.Post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich")
        .addHeader("Authorization","Bearer {Your API Key}")
        .execute();
    

    Authenticating with the FullContact API is accomplished through the use of an API key. You can retrieve and manage your API keys from the FullContact Developer Portal.

    When accessing the FullContact API, include your API Key within the "Authorization" header of your POST, using a prefix of "Bearer". An example of this is shown to the right.

    Response Codes & Errors

    All responses from the FullContact API use HTTP status codes along with additional information encoded as JSON in the response body in the message field. Generally, responses returned with a status code in the 2xx range indicate success, those in the 4xx range indicate an error usually resulting from a problem in the request or difficulty finding data, and those in the 5xx range indicate an issue on FullContact's servers.

    Different errors may result in the same HTTP status code. Because of this, it is important to observe not only the response code, but also the JSON body, which will include additional details about the response, including more details around error cases.

    A list of general response codes and a description of each is available below. Specific response codes for individual endpoints have been documented along side the request for each endpoint.

    Response Codes
    200 - OK The request was successful.
    202 - Accepted The request was successful and it is currently being processed.
    400 - Bad Request There was an issue with the request that was provided.
    401 - Unauthorized You do not have access to this resource. This is often caused by supplying an incorrect API key or omitting it, or by reaching quota limits.
    404 - Not Found No data could be found.
    429 - Too Many Requests The request is denied because you have reached your request rate limit.
    50X - Server Error Something is broken on FullContact's side. If you encounter this, please contact us at support@fullcontact.com for assistance.

    Rate Limiting

    All API requests are subject to rate limits that exist independently of your API key's monthly usage allowance. We track rate limits on a 60-second basis. For example, if your API is subject to a 10/second rate limit, we will allow you 600 requests per 60 second window. To make it easier for your application to determine if it is being rate limited, or if it is likely to be in the future, we have added the following HTTP headers to successful responses:

    Rate Limit Headers
    X-Rate-Limit The rate limit ceiling for your request.
    Example: 600
    X-Rate-Limit-Remaining The number of requests left in the 60-second window.
    Example: 10
    X-Rate-Limit-Reset The number of UTC epoch seconds remaining until the 60 second window resets.
    Example: 20

    Webhooks

    Example Person Enrichment Request with Webhook

    curl -X POST https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {Your API Key}" \
    -d '{"email":"bart@fullcontact.com","webhookUrl":"http://www.fullcontact.com/hook"}'
    
    var fetch = require('node-fetch');
    
    fetch('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich',{
      method: 'POST',
      headers: {
        "Authorization": "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      },
      body: '{
        "email": "bart@fullcontact.com",
        "webhookUrl": "http://www.fullcontact.com/hook"
      }'
    }).then(function(res) {
      return res.json();
    }).then(function(json){
      console.log(json);
    });
    
    import urllib2, json
    
    req = urllib2.Request('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich')
    req.add_header('Authorization', 'Bearer {Your API Key}')
    data = json.dumps({
        "email": "bart@fullcontact.com",
        "webhookUrl": "http://www.fullcontact.com/hook"
    })
    
    response = urllib2.urlopen(req,data)
    
    require 'rest-client'
    require 'json'
    
    response = RestClient.post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich",
      {
        "email" => "bart@fullcontact.com",
        "webhookUrl" => "http://www.fullcontact.com/hook"
      }.to_json,
      {
        :authorization => "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      })
    
    JSON.parse(response.body)
    
    import org.apache.http.client.fluent.Request;
    import org.apache.http.entity.StringEntity;
    
    Request.Post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich")
        .addHeader("Authorization","Bearer {Your API Key}")
        .body(new StringEntity("{" +
           "\"email\":\"bart@fullcontact.com\"," +
           "\"webhookUrl\":\"http://www.fullcontact.com/hook\"" +
        "}"))
        .execute()
        .returnContent();
    

    The FullContact API contains some requests that may take more time to process, or that need to post information back to your service when data are available, such as data subscriptions. For these operations, we support the use of webhooks.

    Webhooks are a mechanism that allow you to supply a URL to the FullContact API that we can send data to once an operation is complete.

    For the requests that support them, webhooks are defined in the request body using the webhookUrl field. For example, the Person Enrichment request allows you to supply a Person Summary object, with an additional property for a webhookUrl

    When a webhook has been provided for a given request, an HTTP POST request will be sent to the URL provided once the process has completed. The payload of the POST request will mirror the responses of most other FullContact API requests, with data sent as JSON within the POST body.

    During development and while testing webhooks, we recommend intercepting the webook POST requests locally, or using a web-based webhook testing service like Requestb.in. Requestb.in lets you debug webhooks by capturing and logging the asynchronous requests made when events happen. Create a Requestb.in URL and insert the URL provided into the webhookUrl parameter of your API request. All messages POSTed to the Requestb.in URL will be available almost immediately after you initiate a webhook-based request.

    More details around webhook expectations and responses coming soon!

    Upgrading

    With the release of our new Enrich API on our next generation platform, a lot of new functionality is now available for enriching person and company profiles. To take advantage of this new functionality, you will need to upgrade your code and integrations that use the existing FullContact API. While each implementation is different, this guide will walk through the common steps needed to upgrade for most situations.

    Previous Person API Request

    curl -H "X-FullContact-APIKey:{Your API Key}" "https://api.fullcontact.com/v2/person.json?email=bart@fullcontact.com"
    
    var fetch = require('node-fetch');
    
    fetch('https://api.fullcontact.com/v2/person.json?email=bart@fullcontact.com',{
      headers: {
        "X-FullContact-APIKey": "{Your API Key}"
      }
    }).then(function(res) {
      return res.json();
    }).then(function(json){
      console.log(json);
    });
    
    import urllib2, json
    
    req = urllib2.Request('https://api.fullcontact.com/v2/person.json?email=bart@fullcontact.com')
    req.add_header('X-FullContact-APIKey', '{Your API Key}')
    
    response = urllib2.urlopen(req,data)
    
    require 'rest-client'
    require 'json'
    
    response = RestClient.get("https://api.fullcontact.com/v2/person.json?email=bart@fullcontact.com",
      {
        X-FullContact-APIKey => "{Your API Key}"
      })
    
    JSON.parse(response.body)
    
    import org.apache.http.client.fluent.Request;
    import org.apache.http.entity.StringEntity;
    
    Request.Get("https://api.fullcontact.com/v2/person.json?email=bart@fullcontact.com")
        .addHeader("X-FullContact-APIKey","{Your API Key}")
        .execute()
        .returnContent();
    

    Enriching the same contact with Enrich API

    curl -X POST https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.enrich \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {Your API Key}" \
    -d '{"email":"bart@fullcontact.com"}'

    1. Get a New API Key. Authentication in our new API platform has changed to allow for added levels of security. This means you’ll need to create a new key to use the latest APIs. We’ve made these new keys backwards-compatible, so once you generate a new one, you can use it for both our new Enrich API as well as the existing Person, Company, Verify and Card Reader APIs.

      To generate a new API key, visit the FullContact Dashboard. From the main page of the, click the “Generate API Key” button and follow the dialog prompt to create a new key. Once the new key is generated, be sure to copy it into your code immediately - we’ll only show you this key once.

    2. Update Your Requests. Our new API has a different request structure, with a different mechanism for sending your API key as well as a different way for sending matching criteria for person and company profiles.

      • Authorization Header In the previous version of the API, API keys could be sent either as a query parameter, or within the X-FullContact-APIKey header. With the new API, keys are now sent across within the Authorization header, with the string “Bearer “ (yes, that’s a space after “Bearer”) added to the beginning of your key. This is the only allowed method for including keys in the new API.
      • POST instead of GET One of the more significant changes in our API is the move to an RPC-style interface instead of REST. This means that all requests to our new APIs will be done using the POST method instead of GET. Be sure that you code is updated to now send requests using the POST method.
      • Query Changes In our previous API, lookup parameters for both Person and Company were sent as query parameters in the request. In our new APIs, this information is now sent across as keys inside of a post body object, referred to as the Person Summary Object. All of the previous queryable fields (email address, phone, etc.) are still supported in the Enrich API.
    3. Parse the Response. Our new APIs now return only JSON, so if your code is using something other than JSON today, be sure to update it to accept a JSON response. The structure of the response is also different, so you will need to change how you are accessing the various elements. View our Person Enrichment and Company Enrichment documentation sections for details on what the new response looks like.

    Enrich API

    Lookup and enrich individuals by sending any identifiers you may already have, such as an email address, Twitter handle or phone number. These identifiers will then be used to locate and return any additional information we may have, such as a person’s name and social handles.

    The Person Summary Object

    When enriching or subscribing to person contacts, the FullContact API both accepts and returns a Person Summary object that includes attributes about the person, including queryable criteria such as email address and twitter handle, as well as additional information such as name, gender, etc.

    Example Person Summary Object

    {
      "email": "bart@fullcontact.com",
      "emailHash": "d77ff8a9f4d2d4fea4153c81ba5d39a2",

      "website": "https://fullcontact.com/bart",
      "details": {...}
    }
    
    Properties
    email string Queryable The email address of the contact.
    emailHash string Queryable Either an MD5 or SHA-256 hash representation of the email address to query. Be certain to lowercase and trim the email address prior to hashing.
    twitter string Queryable Twitter handle of the contact. Acceptable formats include handle (with or without "@"), as well as the URL to the profile.
    phone string Queryable Phone number of the contact.
    fullName string Full name of the contact.
    ageRange string Age range of the contact.
    gender string Gender of the contact.
    location string Location of the contact. Depending on data quality, the exactness of this value may vary.
    title string Current or most recent job title.
    organization string Current or most recent place of work.
    linkedin string URL of the contact's LinkedIn profile.
    facebook string URL of the contact's Facebook profile.

    avatar string URL of the contact's photo.
    website string URL of the contact's website.
    details object When included, additional details about the contact provided through Data Add-ons will be available here.

    With the Person Summary object sent in the request, the FullContact API will attempt to enrich the contact with as much information as available, helping to fill in any missing properties, and then returning the Person Summary. The properties that are returned with values during an enrichment or subscription are dependent upon the data available for the given contact.

    Enrich a person contact by supplying a Person Summary object.

    This endpoint supports the use of webhooks. To use webhooks, include webhookUrl as a property inside of the Person Summary object. Click here to learn more about webhooks in the FullContact API.

    Extension Properties
    webhookUrl Webhook URL An optional parameter on the request body containing a URL to an endpoint on your service that will accept a posted json response of an enrichment result.
    confidence string A premium feature, the confidence parameter can be added to adjust quality threshold of data returned, with acceptable values of LOW, MED, HIGH, and MAX, with the default set to HIGH. The higher the confidence, the higher the likelihood that the data returned is accurate. If the confidence level of the data to be returned does not meet or exceed the parameter provided, then the result will not be a match. Generally, setting this value higher results in more accurate data, but fewer matches, while setting the value lower results in more matches and data, but lower quality and accuracy. If you would like to enable this feature on your plan, please contact us at team@fullcontact.com.
    Responses
    200 - OK A match has been found and a Person Summary object will be returned. If any Data Add-ons have been enabled and data are available, those Data Add-ons will be returned in the details property of the Person Summary object.
    202 - Accepted Can occur if:
    • A webhookUrl property was provided in which the response will be returned to the URL, or
    • A match or data is not readily available, please try the request again.
    404 - Not Found Could not find a match or no additional data provided beyond the information supplied in the request.

    Subscriptions

    Subscriptions enable you to receive updates about your contacts of interest as soon as we have new data to deliver through the use of webhooks. When updates for a subscribed contact are available, the FullContact API will send the data to the supplied webhook URL provided when the subscription was created.

    A subscription will exist and be active until you have explicitly un-subscribed from the contact.

    Subscribe to a Person

    Example Request

    curl -X POST https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.subscribe \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {Your API Key}" \
    -d '{"email":"bart@fullcontact.com","webhookUrl":"http://www.fullcontact.com/hookUrl"}'
    
    var fetch = require('node-fetch');
    
    fetch('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.subscribe',{
      method: 'POST',
      headers: {
        "Authorization": "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      },
      body: '{
        "email": "bart@fullcontact.com",
        "twitter": "@bartlorang"
        "fullName": "Bart Lorang",
        "webhookUrl":"http://www.fullcontact.com/hookUrl"
      }'
    }).then(function(res) {
      return res.json();
    }).then(function(json){
      console.log(json);
    });
    
    import urllib2, json
    
    req = urllib2.Request('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.subscribe')
    req.add_header('Authorization', 'Bearer {Your API Key}')
    data = json.dumps({
        "email": "bart@fullcontact.com",
        "twitter": "@bartlorang",
        "fullName": "Bart Lorang",
        "webhookUrl": "http://www.fullcontact.com/hookUrl"
    })
    
    response = urllib2.urlopen(req,data)
    
    require 'rest-client'
    require 'json'
    
    response = RestClient.post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.subscribe",
      {
        "email" => "bart@fullcontact.com",
        "twitter" => "@bartlorang",
        "fullName" => "Bart Lorang",
        "webhookUrl" => "http://www.fullcontact.com/hookUrl"
      }.to_json,
      {
        :authorization => "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      })
    
    JSON.parse(response.body)
    
    import org.apache.http.client.fluent.Request;
    import org.apache.http.entity.StringEntity;
    
    Request.Post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.subscribe")
        .addHeader("Authorization","Bearer {Your API Key}")
        .body(new StringEntity("{" +
           "\"email\":\"bart@fullcontact.com\"," +
           "\"twitter\":\"@bartlorang\"," +
           "\"fullName\":\"Bart Lorang\"" +
        "}"))
        .execute()
        .returnContent();
    

    Example Response

    {
      "subscriptionId": "189967a9b4f4f8e3d8c0db178801be5c",
      "message": "Subscription created"
    }
    

    Much like the Person Enrichment request, subscribing to a person is done by passing a Person Summary object to the subscribe endpoint.

    This endpoint requires that the Person Summary object be extended with the webhookUrl so that the FullContact API has a location to deliver subscription updates to. As well, an optional subscriptionId property can be supplied to reference the subscription for later operations, such as un-subscribing. If subscriptionId is omitted, one will be generated and returned as part of the response.

    Extension Properties
    webhookUrl Webhook URL Required Some description about webhook URL
    subscriptionId string Optional An optional subscriptionId. If supplied, ensure this value is unique for each of your contacts.

    Response

    An object with a subscriptionId property representing the ID associated with this subscription, as well as a message string.

    Unsubscribe from a Person

    Example Request

    curl -X POST https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.unsubscribe \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {Your API Key}" \
    -d '{"subscriptionId":"bd468cad24cb216ab3960bd"}'
    
    var fetch = require('node-fetch');
    
    fetch('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.unsubscribe',{
      method: 'POST',
      headers: {
        "Authorization": "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      },
      body: '{"subscriptionId": "bd468cad24cb216ab3960bd"}'
    }).then(function(res) {
      return res.json();
    }).then(function(json){
      console.log(json);
    });
    
    import urllib2, json
    
    req = urllib2.Request('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.unsubscribe')
    req.add_header('Authorization', 'Bearer {Your API Key}')
    data = json.dumps({"subscriptionId":"bd468cad24cb216ab3960bd"})
    
    response = urllib2.urlopen(req,data)
    
    require 'rest-client'
    require 'json'
    
    response = RestClient.post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.unsubscribe",
      {
        "subscriptionId" => "bd468cad24cb216ab3960bd"
      }.to_json,
      {
        :authorization => "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      })
    
    JSON.parse(response.body)
    
    import org.apache.http.client.fluent.Request;
    import org.apache.http.entity.StringEntity;
    
    Request.Post("https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/person.unsubscribe")
        .addHeader("Authorization","Bearer {Your API Key}")
        .body(new StringEntity("{\"subscriptionId\":\"bd468cad24cb216ab3960bd\"}"))
        .execute()
        .returnContent();
    

    Example Response

    {
        "subscriptionId": [
            "aa1bd9b7bb8a606dcb6dcad23967c3ed"
        ],
        "message": "Subscription successfully removed"
    }
    

    At some point in the lifecycle of a subscription, you may find that you no longer need to receive updates for a particular contact, for example, they may no longer be a customer of interest. For these cases, the FullContact API provides an endpoint for you to un-subscribe to previously subscribed contacts.

    This endpoint accepts 4 different parameters: email, phone, twitter, and subscriptionId. However, you can supply only one per request. For example, supplying email will remove any subscriptions associated with that email address, but supplying email and phone will result in a 400 response from the API.

    Once the endpoint has been called to successfully remove a subscription, you will no longer receive any updates for the particular contact. If you need to resubscribe, subscriptions can be recreated at any time.

    Properties
    email string The email address of the subscribed contact.
    phone string The phone number of the subscribed contact.
    twitter string The Twitter handle of the subscribed contact.
    subscriptionId string The ID of the subscription to delete.

    Verify API

    Our Verify API is not yet available on our new API platform. For email verification services, please use our existing Email Verification API.

    Card Reader API

    Our Card Reader API is not yet available on our new API platform. To transcribe business cards, please use our existing Card Reader API.

    Account Stats

    Understanding your current API usage is helpful, not only for billing purposes, but also within your application. For example, if you are nearing or have exceeded your usage limits for our Enrich API, you may want your application to behave differently, possibly limiting or preventing further requests until you have upgraded your plan to avoid overages. The Account Stats API will give you the insights needed to make these sorts of decisions by providing usage information for the current billing period.

    Retrieving Usage

    Example Request

    curl -X POST https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/stats.get \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer {Your API Key}" \

        "Authorization": "Bearer {Your API Key}"
      },
      body: '{
        "stats": ["person","company"]
      }'
    }).then(function(res) {
      return res.json();
    }).then(function(json){
      console.log(json);
    });
    
    import urllib2, json
    
    req = urllib2.Request('https://api.fullcontact.com/v3/stats.get')
    req.add_header('Authorization', 'Bearer {Your API Key}')
    data = json.dumps({

    The Stats API returns back an object with information regarding the current billing period, plan details, and usage metrics. The usage metrics are available in the stats key, with a sub-key for each category. Every category will contain sub-keys for it's respective metrics, with each metric containing keys for count, quota, and overQuota. count will hold the current value of the given metric, quota represents the amount or limit allowed for the given period (if applicable), and overQuota is a simple boolean, with a value of true if the count is greater than the quota for a given metric.
