Does TRKD support both SOAP and REST?

The TRKD developer documentation clearly states it supports SOAP/XML, i.e

"...using today's industry standard protocols (SOAP and XML)."

Yet the TRKD API portal allows you to choose a content type of JSON. Also, the developer documentation references many examples to request for data using JSON. Can someone clear up the confusion? I didn't find anywhere within the developer documentation REST or using JSON with SOAP.

thank you.

TRKD API services support SOAP (XML). The majority of the services also support JSON, POST calls with JSON formatted request in body. JSON support is a new feature that was recently added in TRKD API. Please refer to the developer guide to find the services that support JSON and information how to use the JSON format.

Hi @Rupert Schilling

TRKD contains both SOAP and REST interfaces. The SOAP interface supports XML message format only while the REST interface supports JSON message only.

Thank you. Why doesn't the documentation specifically state this? In fact, can you point to me anywhere within any documentation where it states REST?
