      • Request
        • Method (text): The object method to be interacted with. Try news.get as an example
        • Params (object): Some requests will require parameters for your object method. These are formatted as an object. In the Shiftboard Documentation above, the format of each method’s parameters are included on the right side of the page. NOTE: for requests with no parameters, pass an empty object {}.

      Output Fields

      • Success (true/false) : A true false value, determining if the Shiftboard API responded to the request. A true value can still mean an error was returned from Shiftboard.
      • Result (object) : The returned data of the request. This can contain a result, if the request was successful, or an error if the request was not.
