GLEIF seeks feedback on the beta version of its new GLEIF application programming interface (API). The new beta API gives developers access to the full LEI Data search engine functionality, including filters, full-text, and single-field searches of legal entity and ownership data, and “fuzzy” matching of relevant data fields such as names and addresses. The feedback period will end by March 2020. The results of this feedback will be reflected in the new GLEIF API, which will replace the GLEIF LEI Look-up API later next year.
Additionally, GLEIF has published the iXBRL Signature Tool and Google Chrome Signature Viewer. The iXBRL Signature Tool consists of a .NET library and a proof-of-concept desktop tool for signing and countersigning iXBRL or other XML files. The Chrome Signature Viewer can be used to verify digital signatures on XHTML and Inline XBRL files. GLEIF has an Open Data philosophy and a mission to manage a network of partners. As such, GLEIF is working with various organizations to create software to manage LEI data or help to leverage the use of LEI data. To provide transparency, GLEIF provides “open source” software to any interested party for use at their discretion. Based on the CC0 license, users are free to do anything with the provided software.
