Company Listing

Companies let users share access to private discussions. It's a handy way of letting multiple customers from the same group see each other's posts.

Single Company

  "name": "Smithson LLC",
  "permalink": "smithsonllc",

  "updated_at": "2009-07-04T05:26:44Z",
  "href": ""


  • id - The ID of the company (duh!) You'll use this when setting a user's company.
  • name - The name of the company.
  • permalink - This is the sanitized name used in company URLs. It is auto-generated from the name if not provided.
  • href - API URL for the company.

You can use the User API to set the company_id on the user to assign them to a company.

Create Company

To create a company, you need to POST a JSON company with the name field. permalink is optional. If successful, a valid company JSON record is returned.
