Custom UI/UX using GameSpark API's ?

Just a general high level question. Is it possible to use any of the API's or tech from GameSparks to create an external GM Tool of sorts where our CS and GM's could manage users but in a UI/UX we design? Example: lookup user with status -- level, currency and do simple stuff like add currency to user, inject an item etc. General live op cs type stuff. 


It's not super clear in what I have read that it's possible but I am curious if anyone has used it this way. Considering we have other tools and multiple games we are trying to centralize our tools in a control panel on our side but want to 100% leverage the GameSparks service for the actual features and functions.


Any insight or pointing in the right direction of necessary documents would be very helpful.


Thanks

Ryan

Hi Ryan,


We do not offer the means to create a custom-ui outside of the Custom Manage screens on the Gamesparks portal. 


However, we do provide a REST API that allows for custom web-applications to plug in and request data through our many requests and even LogEvent Requests (so you can return whatever you want). This is all done through credential callbacks.


In this way you can hit the callback url (with a method name if necessary) and you'll be able to access Gamesparks functions to retrieve and update data.

Hey Ryan, Nice name!


There's 2 options for customizing access to the data. The first is through Dynamic Forms. But that is still on Gamesparks' website, and it sounds like you want access to control your data outside of the website.


For that you would want to look into the REST API. You can use API that to view and modify most of your data, so you can write whatever custom application you want. But I heard GS is doing a major update to it to add new functionality and such (unless they already finished the update) so you might want to keep that in mind.


Hope that helps.
