Enterprise Web Services and Events
Enterprise Web Services are a set of consistent, secure, REST Web services that enable UW developers to integrate applications and Web pages with essential UW business systems. Event messages are published for significant changes in business data and may be subscribed to by client applications.
Enterprise Web Services are fully documented in the UW Web Services Registry (http://webservices.uw.edu). They include:
- Student Web Service (SWS)
- HR/Payroll Web Service (HRPWS)
- Financial Web Service (FWS)
- Person Web Service (PWS)
- Space Web Service
- ID Card Web Service
- Course Enrollment/Registration Event
- Course Available Event
- Section Add/Drop Event
public Web Service resources (e.g. course) are available to any application or Web page including non-UW entities. Other Web services and events are available only to applications which have been granted explicit access by UW Data Custodians.
Available Web services and documentation on how to obtain access to them are listed in the UW Web Services Registry at: http://webservices.washington.edu
Until an Event Registry becomes available, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to request subscription to or information about one of the automated business events.
Most Web services and events are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
