What users can and can't do using the API
Interact consists of three different APIs for varying uses. We make changes to each of these APIs from time to time. Please read these pages carefully.

Profile Sources
The Profile Sources API provides the ability to synchronise user profiles from custom sources. Interact provides out-of-the-box connectors that will 'pull' user profile information from Active Directory and Azure Active Directory. The Profile Sources API allows a third party to 'push' profile information into Interact. Multiple Profile Sources can be defined to manage complex synchronisation from different third parties.

Enterprise Search
Enterprise Search API allows for the creation of new custom entities within the Interact search index. Through the API you can push index records and allow them to be searchable by your end-users. Additionally, you can utilise Interact permissions to determine which users or groups of users can search for the custom entities.

The REST API provides access to the common core entities within Interact.

Customisation available
Description of customisation
Interact is a highly configurable service (SaaS) supporting a wide range of options, including the ability to turn off individual apps/features completely if they’re not being used and enabling appropriate features at the page level.

User profiles can have custom data fields associated with them, which can be synchronised from any data source. Pages of content can be configured to contain quizzes, polls, comments, or marked as mandatory for a set of users.

Interact is fully controllable via role based permissions which can be linked to a series of user fields, including location, department, company, teams as well as user specified Security Groups. Interact operates a ‘secure by default’ policy ensuring that access has to be explicitly granted. Additionally, if a user does not have access to a certain part of the system or item of content, then it won’t be visible to the user, ensuring they don’t receive ‘permission denied’ errors across the system.

Finally, Interact has implemented a feature called the ‘Developer Framework’ which allows a power user to add JavaScript to each page enabling full manipulation of the DOM and interaction with Interacts API, or third party APIs.


Independence of resources
Interact's cloud service is hosted using AWS (Amazon Web Services).

AWS regularly win awards for their cloud services and are considered the 'best of breed'. Interact uses a wide range of AWS features to ensure that resources are always available for all of our customers. This includes Application Load Balancers, and Auto Scaling Webservers. This means that as demand increases, the resources available to the system increase to meet that demand. This ensures that each user receives the best response times possible.


Service usage metrics
Metrics types

Operational security

Configuration and change management standard
Supplier-defined controls
Configuration and change management approach
Once a change has been requested it's logged and goes through an approval process. Once approved, the change is applied, and goes through several peer review steps, ensuring that the changes comply with our standards and any security concerns are raised and mitigated.
Our Development team are all based in our UK head office and undergo regular security training. A full QA process takes place after this including unit testing, and regression testing.

Interact has a policy of none-breaking changes, ensuring that any changes do not break existing functionality. The change is tracked through the entire lifecycle.
Vulnerability management type
Supplier-defined controls
Vulnerability management approach
Interact is ISO27001 certified, and implements a Secure Development Life Cycle. Part of this process is to ensure that any application code added complies with our own high standards. Additionally, our dedicated cloud team regularly apply security patches and monitor for security vulnerabilities.

Interact also commissions an independent third party to perform penetration testing every 6 months. This testing incorporates both the application itself, and the cloud architecture covering all aspects of the service.
Protective monitoring type
Supplier-defined controls
Protective monitoring approach
Interact deploys a series of active monitoring systems. This includes monitoring application response times, hardware health, application errors and Intrusion Detection. The intrusion detection monitors for unusual activity, including unusually high requests, or requests from unusual geographical locations.

Our dedicated cloud team are automatically notified should an alert be triggered and are on call 24/7 to address any issues as quickly as possible. This incorporates a full investigation and the implementation of any changes to the systems that might mitigate risk in the future.
Incident management type
Supplier-defined controls
Incident management approach
In the event of a security incident, an investigation lead will be selected by senior management. They will determine time scales and details with regards to method of communication appropriate to the severity and nature of the incident.

In the event of a loss, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to our customer’s personal data held in the cloud the affected customer(s) must be told, via a phone call as soon as the initial investigation has established the details of the breach and no later than 24 hours after the first report of the breach.
