The first and main difference between them is that with most APIs there’s a request followed by a response. No request is required for a webhook, it just sends the data when it’s available. Simple view: The API is an interface to your data on example.com. The API is used from your server to the example.com platform and can be used to List, Create, Edit or ...

API is doing stuff when you ask it to, while Webhook does stuff on it's own when certain criteria match. So, in a nutshell: The API is where you tell us things and Webhooks is where we tell you things. via http://apidocs.teamwork.com/article/466-whats-the-difference-between-the-api-and-webhooks Whenever there’s something new, the webhook will send it ...

Note that having this sort of sub-federal jurisdiction above the level of a municipality happens in many countries, not just in the US (e.g Australia, Canada, China, India, Mexico...) To answer your question, you (modiX) need to understand why one would ask for the state (or province or territory). There are two primary reasons: If you need to use old-...

I'll illustrate this with a concrete example: Credit card payments. When your site wants to charge a credit card, you call an API at your credit card processor. The credit card processor then charges the credit card returns a success or failure status to that API call. The credit card processor may need some way of updating your site about this ...

The only authoritative source on this is ICANN/IANA (and despite its name "icannwiki.org" is not run by ICANN so should not be taken as authoritative source) Specifically you can go to the following addresses: https://gtldresult.icann.org/applicationstatus/viewstatus https://gtldresult.icann.org/applicationstatus/stringcontentionstatus If you do a search ...

There are fringe cases where zip codes can actually cross state lines. Amazingly stupid, but true: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ZIP_code#By_geography Following trends blindly might be bad UI design but bucking them without a healthy dose of paranoia is a bad idea too.

Midnight is the logic time to end a session - if there has to be a specific time at which each and every session, no matter how long it is open has to be ended. Even if it might seem stupid to count two sessions for a user visiting from 11:55pm - and leaving after 10 minutes. You might want to count visits per day/week/month/year. An in this case there has ...

Edit: Google just announced the upgrade path to universal analytics: We just launched the Google Analytics Upgrade Center, an easy, two-step process to upgrade your classic Analytics accounts to Universal Analytics. From their upgrade instructions: Step 1: Transfer your property from Classic to Universal Analytics. We’ve developed a new tool to ...

This artictle has good instructions for getting Google Alerts RSS feeds: To use the feature, log in to your Google Alerts account and make sure you have at least one entry. If you don’t, create one by picking a search query for Google to track for you. Next, click on Manage Alerts and hit the Edit button on an alert you want to get an RSS feed for. ...

Google Alerts allows you to setup an RSS feed for the alert delivery. That'll probably be your best bet to get the data in a structured form.

Disclaimer or Terms and Conditions All sites that obtain personal information should use some kind of disclaimer or terms of conditions on submitting such data to the system, this varies from site to site and you should do a little research on what things you should be mentioning. If its for a big project then I suggest a legal adviser. It's important to ...

You need a Disclaimer - make the users to agree and understand that although you will not misuse their data, but you will not be responsible for anything that may happen to the information that they submitted voluntary. About "making the data safe", it can't be answered in this question, it's too broad and you need to be more specific.

I suggest you don't put 20.000 rows of data on the screen. My very basic workstation will crash because of the amount of data, regardless of the browser. 80MB is a lot, especially if it's html! Parsing so much is quite intens. I suggest you make something with a prev/next-page functionallity, I doubt the user requires all 20.000 lines on their screen at ...

You need to refer to the copyright notices on the relevant sites. For instance, prweb.com copyright notice states: Vocus, Inc. and/or its subsidiary Vocus PRW Holdings LLC, (collectively “PRWeb”) grant you a limited license to use and/or republish any of the press releases on this site for any legitimate media purpose, provided that you: (1) ...

My experience with data warehousing for site analytics is that it is very expensive. You are either going to spend a lot of money using a pre-packaged solution, or you are going to spend money (in the form of time or hiring) building one yourself. If you are just starting out, forego the expense of custom analytics. Use free off the shelf products. ...

You seem to be talking about the right to be forgotten which exists only in some countries in Europe and only applies to sites within that jurisdiction. For that I do not know. As for the rest of the world, this is not a right and any request would be up to the discretion of the site owner. If you have a compelling case, and there are some, then I could see ...

I definitely do not recommend encoding the uploads and storing them in a relational database, that's just introducing a lot of overhead and complexity for no gain. File systems were designed for files :) You definitely want to design this to be flexible, because today you might use your own server, tomorrow AWS, and months from now a CDN. Or any combination ...

The website is still cached and indexed in Google so in terms of front end content, if you're quick, you can still grab the content on your website's pages and use your browsers dev tools to get the site's source code and stylesheets (before Google starts dropping your pages from it's index). Other than that, the only way of retrieving data is on the server ...

I used pgAdmin4 to execute SQL requests. I wanted to remove all the data I imported via the DHIS2 Import/Export tool (I imported the data on Oct 15 2018). First I selected the data to insure that, that's what I wanted to remove: SELECT * from public.datavalue WHERE created >= '2018-10-15'::date ORDER BY created DESC limit 5000; Then I removed the data:...

There is no such function currently for bulk deletion of data as of version 2.19. It has been considered to risky to do that through the UI. You can delete data records using SQL against the "datavalue" database table. When adding data elements to data sets the data entry form should automatically be updated. The data entry forms are cached locally in the ...

Here's an example of the difference between webhook and API in layman's term: Say you ordered something online and the delivery would be today but you're at work so you told your maid get the package once it arrives. The goal is, you have to be notified if the package already arrived. This is what happens in: Webhook Once the package arrived, your maid ...

Your CEO is right, Google Tag Manager is definitely the way forward and it offers so much more than Google Analytics. The first step is to add the Google Tag Manager container snippet to your site. This is done in two parts. The first section is added to the tag and the second section is added to the tag. Full details are explained here https://...

You can use the CSV import format which is described in this section of the docs: https://docs.dhis2.org/master/en/developer/html/webapi_data_values.html#webapi_data_values_csv You can either upload the file through the user interface from Apps > Import / Export > Data import, then select CSV as format. You can also use the Web API to achieve the same, ...

I don't think the future registry has been appointed yet. Apparently you still have 3 applicants and it hasn't been decided who will own .DATA in the end. Also there seems to be a "warning" on the Dish application because of anti-trust/anti-competition issues. Source : https://icannwiki.org/.data What's for sure : don't expect it in 2019...

You should be able to achieve this with calculated fields. I find them pretty useful in a variety of situations. For further information on calculated fields and how to create them, the following page has helpful information: https://support.google.com/datastudio/answer/6299685?hl=en

Going by the Locu site itself once you have managed your info and click a certain button the data is pushed out at that time to all the networks in needs to be shared to. How long it takes those networks to update their own records is really dependant on them however Locu seems to indicate that it is a very short amount of time to push the data out to the ...

Yes they will be excluded. Website visitors have the ability to prevent their data to be used. I also tried to do that via Tag Manager too, but it doesn't work.

Split your location into two sections: 1. <Location /apex/> - here you should put ProxyPassReverse options. 2. <Location /apex/(?!wwv_flow\.show)> - this one will match everything other then /apex/wwv_flow.show First section is required because ProxyPassReverse takes location literally and will go crazy on regex. If you encounter such problems ...

MedicalSignOrSymptom is for adding markup to the sign or symptom itself, therefore the name property is the sign or symptom, i.e.: <div vocab="http://schema.org/" typeof="MedicalSignOrSymptom"> <p>Patient complains of <span property="name">severe abdominal pain</span>.</p> </div>

If you have SMW, the solution is extremely simple. You can list the pages in question by adding them to a specific category. The category members can then be listed in the format you prefer. A simple list, suitable e.g. for use in the middle of text or for a non-distracting navigation box, is then as simple as {{#ask: [[Category:Finnish]] | format=list }}. ...
