API Operations

As previously stated, the Euromonitor International API consists of different services, each with its own responsibility. Currently, the API has three main services serving the following datasets:

Requests to these services contain many parameters, some of them mandatory. We need to tell them which geographies, categories and/or industries we want data for, by way of IDs. Or which currency we want to convert value data to. But how do we know which IDs we can supply? What currencies does the API support?

This is where the Euromonitor Catalog Service comes in. It is covered first in this guide, and will help you obtain and understand the reference data you need to build the requests you will send to the main services.
