Reports API

: Reports API - Rate limiting API requests for creating reports

Starting from 17 June 2024, requests for creating reports will be rate limited. This is to ensure that our services remain stable. You can see more details under the “Rate limiting” section in the Reports API documentation.

API changes after your company is converted to use new services

Bring is revising the service portfolio. Some of our services have been given new service names, service codes and pricing models.

If you are an existing user of Reports API, you will need to make some changes after your company is converted to use new services.

The Reports API can be used as a tool for analyzing your logistics with Bring. The API lets you generate reports within the categories status, quality and deviation, economy and environment. Supported report formats are XML and Excel.

Authentication

To integrate with the Bring APIs, you will need a Mybring user account with an API key. Information about prerequisites and authentication headers can be found on the general API Getting Started page.

Rate limiting

The Reports application has a rate limiting functionality. When triggered, a response with HTTP status code 429 will immediately be returned for the user if they attempt to create a report. Users can be throttled for creating multiple identical requests in a short amount of time. Additionally, users are also limited to 20 concurrent report requests that can be created at once. After 20 report requests has been created, the user will need to wait for one of them to finish before a new one can be made.

Formats

REST XML/JSON over HTTP.

Fetching reports

The first two steps in the process is only necessary to find customer numbers and report types for the user. You can save these IDs, and perform the generation-step without verifying the IDs. The response may get added information, so implementation should ignore new elements added to the response.

  1. Get the customers IDs
  2. Get the list of report types available for the customer
  3. Initiate report creation and get the report ID. The Report ID is initially used to monitor reports creation progress, later to get the actual report (XML or Excel file).
  4. After initiating report creation, you can check the status, if it’s in-progress, completed or failed. When completed, a URL to the actual report is returned.
  5. Download report
