Using Nexis Uni URL API

Before You Start: The information in this topic applies to Nexis Uni® URL API users. This application programming interface (API) lets users execute tasks in Nexis Uni using URLs, rather than the standard user interface. Please contact your LexisNexis representative if you would like additional information about this feature.

Nexis Uni URL API provides a one-way Application Programming Interface (API) used to link into the Nexis Uni application. If you are an authorized user, you can use the Nexis Uni URL API to run a search, view your alerts, view a Shepard's® report, and do many other things using a URL, rather than the Nexis Uni user interface. After entering a URL, you'll be asked to authenticate in Nexis Uni, and then the URL will execute. Your ID must be authorized for the features accessed by a URL in order for it to work correctly.
