This community helps developers, analysts, and business intelligence professionals connect and use the XBRL API, Public Filings Database, Google Sheet resources and other tools more effectively.
Start using as-filed data
The Google Add-on is the easiest way to get started retrieving data with the XBRL API from the Database of Public Filings. You can also request to be able to create Client ID & secret pairs for Excel or your applications.
Data Community Resources:
- Member-contributed XBRL Spreadsheet templates
Anyone is welcomed to share in the collection of customizable spreadsheets, developed by XBRL US Members that conform to the standards on this page. XBRL US Members can earn discounts for contributing to the XBRL API Template library. Got an idea? Email email@example.com so we can discuss it with you (we may have helpful tips, too).
Most of the resources linked below use our Google Sheets Add-on – follow these instructions to get started.
Work with the API in Excel's Power Query, or with your own system or app
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your existing XBRL US Web account provisioned to generate client ID/Secret pairs to work with the XBRL API in a REST client or other application, including Excel's Power Query.
NOTE: You do not need to generate client ID/Secret pairs if you use the Google Add-on and Google Sheet exclusively to access data - the XBRL API Authentication Add-on handles this automatically.
- Periodic Member-only web meetings
Engage in an open forum to learn about new functionality and techniques for using XBRL API, get questions answered, and let members preview XBRL Spreadsheets in development and other applications. The list of upcoming and prior meeting replays is at the right-side of this page.
