Cortex Studio:
Explore the full power of a hypermedia API

Elastic Path Cortex is our patent-pending hypermedia API, allowing developers to assemble resources from multiple business platforms into one unified API. Cortex conforms rigorously to the HATEOAS constraint and Level 3 of the Richardson Maturity Model, making it one of the most advanced APIs on the planet.

With Cortex Studio, an interactive REST development environment, API developers can explore the full power of browsable payloads that require no knowledge of the underlying business logic in order to retrieve data or perform authorized operations.
