Developers > LEI API
RapidLEI’s LEI API gives developers the flexibility to build automated LEI registration into applications quickly and easily.
The LEI API makes searching for LEIs & organizations, and then registering and issuing Legal Entity Identifiers easy and fast. Use the executable API descriptions (Postman Collection), documentation, sample code, and developer tools you need to easily build same-session LEI issuance into applications and workflows. The RapidLEI automation logic will handle the complexity of the application validation.
