Using the RAiD service

RAiD is a free service and may be used by any organisation, lab, institution or similar that takes on the role of a RAiD Service Point.

The service can be accessed for machine-to-machine service by API integration with a platform designated by a RAiD Service Point. 

Or, by manual minting via the RAiD user Dashboard.  


API Integration

The ARDC’s RAiD service API enables the creation of RAiDs via machine-to-machine connection. 

The API is to be integrated with research management software or other applications and workflows.

Web Dashboard

The ARDC’s RAiD service web interface is for users expecting to mint only a very small number of RAiDs, or as an interim arrangement while a M2M is established using the API.

The manual minting service can only mint a single identifier at a time. Bulk minting is currently not supported.
