What Regions and Endpoints Should I Use?

To reduce data latency in your applications, most Learnosity services offer a regional endpoint to make your requests against. An endpoint is a URL that is the entry point for a web service. For example, the default region is the US East - Virginia region, which has this entry point: https://items-va.learnosity.com/. As another example, if you wanted to use the Items API service in Australia, you would use https://item-au.learnosity.com as the entry point.

Some services, such as the Authoring, do not support regions; therefore, their endpoints do not include a region. For Item Authoring endpoints these will point to the Oregon region, and for all other data these will point to US East Region in Virginia.

The following tables show the best endpoints to use depending on where you data is stored. To ensure the fastest performance for your customers it is best to have your data located as close to your customers as possible, and use the endpoints closest to your data.

Note: All endpoints support secure HTTPS protocol.

Note: Learnosity makes use the Cloudfront CDN network which has 48 global Points of Presence which automatically reduces latency for all of our customers.

Note: If you are importing Items Bank data from the Data API targetting the Oregon region (data-or) will give signficantly improved performance due to latency. For all reading of items it is best to use the endpoint closest to your servers as the data is replicated there.
