Introduction

An introduction to our APIs that includes simple examples of how to use them

Introduction

We've organized our APIs around REST commands and use HTTP response codes to indicate successful API calls and those that produce errors. We return all API responses, including errors, as JSON objects.

Our APIs reside at api.peopledatalabs.com. When making direct API requests in URL, you must do so over HTTPS. Calls made over standard HTTP will fail. API requests without proper authentication (a valid API key) will also fail.

https://api.peopledatalabs.com

You can also access our APIs through one of our SDKs.

Person Endpoints

You can use the Person Enrichment API to enrich data on a person:

import json

# See https://github.com/peopledatalabs/peopledatalabs-python
from peopledatalabs import PDLPY

# Create a client, specifying your API key
CLIENT = PDLPY(
    api_key="YOUR API KEY",
)

# Create a parameters JSON object
PARAMS = {
    "profile": ["linkedin.com/in/seanthorne"]
}

# Pass the parameters object to the Person Enrichment API
json_response = CLIENT.person.enrichment(**PARAMS).json()

# Print the API response in JSON format
print(json_response)
curl -X GET \
  'https://api.peopledatalabs.com/v5/person/enrich?api_key=xxxx&profile=linkedin.com/in/seanthorne'
// See https://github.com/peopledatalabs/peopledatalabs-js
import PDLJS from 'peopledatalabs';

// Create a client, specifying your API key
const PDLJSClient = new PDLJS({ apiKey: "YOUR API KEY" });

// Create a parameters JSON object
const params = {
  profile: "http://linkedin.com/in/seanthorne"
}

// Pass the parameters object to the Person Enrichment API
PDLJSClient.person.enrichment(params).then((jsonResponse) => {
  // Print the API response in JSON format
  console.log(jsonResponse);
}).catch((error) => {
  console.log(error);
});
require 'json'

# See https://github.com/peopledatalabs/peopledatalabs-ruby
require 'peopledatalabs'

# Set your API key
Peopledatalabs.api_key = 'YOUR API KEY'

# Create a parameters JSON object
PARAMS = {
    profile: ['linkedin.com/in/seanthorne']
}

# Pass the parameters object to the Person Enrichment API
json_response = Peopledatalabs::Enrichment.person(params: PARAMS)

# Print the API response in JSON format
puts JSON.dump(json_response)
package main

import (

    }

    // Pass the parameters object to the Person Enrichment API

    // Convert the API response to JSON

# Print the API response in JSON format

We also provide a Bulk Person Enrichment API, which allows you to enrich 1-100 persons in a single request (recommended for high-volume usage):

import json

# See https://github.com/peopledatalabs/peopledatalabs-python
from peopledatalabs import PDLPY

# Create a client, specifying your API key
CLIENT = PDLPY(
    api_key="YOUR API KEY",

# Create an array of parameters JSON objects
DATA = {"requests": [{"params": {"profile": ["linkedin.com/in/seanthorne"]}}]}

# Pass the bulk parameters object to the Bulk Person Enrichment API
json_response = CLIENT.person.bulk(**DATA).json()

# Print the API response in JSON format
print(json_response)
curl -X POST "https://api.peopledatalabs.com/v5/person/bulk" -H 'X-Api-Key: xxxx' 'Content-Type: application/json' -d'
{

        }
    ]

// See https://github.com/peopledatalabs/peopledatalabs-js
import PDLJS from 'peopledatalabs';

// Create an array of parameters JSON objects
const data = {
  requests: [
    {
      params: {
        profile: ['linkedin.com/in/seanthorne']
      }
    }
  ]
};

// Pass the parameters object to the Bulk Person Enrichment API
PDLJSClient.person.bulk(data).then((jsonResponse) => {
  // Print the API response in JSON format
  console.log(jsonResponse);
}).catch((error) => {

});
require 'json'

# Print the API response in JSON format

You can use the Person Search API to write queries (in either Elasticsearch or SQL format) against our Person Dataset and return the profiles that match those queries:

import json

CLIENT = PDLPY(

            {'term': {'job_title_role': "health"}},
            {'exists': {'field': "phone_numbers"}}
      ]
    }
  }
}

# Create a parameters JSON object
PARAMS = {
  'query': ES_QUERY,
  'size': 10,
  'pretty': True
}

# Pass the parameters object to the Person Search API
response = CLIENT.person.search(**PARAMS).json()

# Check for successful response
if response["status"] == 200:
  data = response['data']
  # Write out each profile found to file
  with open("my_pdl_search.jsonl", "w") as out:

The Differences Between Our Person-Related APIs

We offer multiple person-related APIs, so how are they different? Here's a summary of each:

Person Retrieve: Directly looks up a specific profile using its PDL ID.

Person Enrichment: Finds the single best profile matching certain attributes about a particular person.

Person Identify: Finds the best selection of profiles associated with a particular set of attributes for a person or related persons.

Person Search: Finds all the profiles for any number of persons that satisfy some search criteria.

Here's a table that summarizes some of the key differences:

Person RetrievePerson EnrichmentPerson IdentifyPerson Search
Matching Type1:11:11:Many1:Many
Input CleaningNoYesYesNo
Supported Query ParametersNone - direct profile lookup by IDOnly supported inputs, which must be uniquely identifyingOnly supported inputs, which do not need to be uniquely identifyingAnything in the Person Schema
Number of Profiles per Unique Query11Up to 20No limit
Sorting of Returned ProfilesN/A - only one profile is returnedN/A - only the single best-matched profile is returnedSorted by match scoreSorted by profile completeness

The key takeaway is that the Person Identify API exists between our Person Enrichment and Search APIs in terms of functionality.

Compared to the Person Enrichment API, which returns a single record for a single person, the Person Identify API supports broader search inputs and returns multiple strongly-related profiles. This means that the Person Identify API is ideal for situations in which you do not have enough information to uniquely resolve a person and are interested in recovering highly-probable candidates. The Person Enrichment API is better suited to targeted enrichment when you have enough uniquely-identifying information.

Compared to the Person Search API, the Person Identify API has standardized input parameters and provides a match score for each returned profile. This means that you can use the Person Identify API to recover a focused selection of highly related profiles, unlike the Person Search API, which will return a potentially large demographic cross-section of our Person Dataset with more loosely-related profiles.

Company Endpoints

Similar to how the Person Enrichment API enriches data on a person, the Company Enrichment API enriches data on a company:
