Base URL

The API uses a POST call, accessible at the following URL:


Please note that the [assigned_server] in the URL will be provided by KEKA's support team, depending on your country of operation and the server assigned to you.

API Headers

For successful API calls, you need to include the following headers:

  • Content-Type : 'application/json'
  • X-API-Key : '_X-API-Key_'
    • Content-Type must be set as application/json
    • X-API-Key will be issued by the KEKA support team when you raise a development request for the Attendance Log Ingestion API.

API Body

The API body carries the employee log data in a JSON format. Here's the expected format:


"DeviceIdentifier": "__DeviceIdentifier__",

  • Timestamp denotes the specific time when the employee checked IN/OUT on a particular day.

Response Message

Upon successful execution of the API call, the following response is returned:




"logsReceived": 1,

"logsAccepted": 1, },

"succeeded": true


In case of a failed API call, the following response is generated. 


"errors": [

"succeeded": false


  • data is an object included in the response when the API call is successful. It contains details about the number of logs posted (logsReceived) and the number of logs accepted and saved in the KEKA server (logsAccepted).
  • succeeded is a Boolean value indicating whether the API request was successful.
  • errors is an array object returned when the API call fails. It includes a list of errors that led to the failure of the API request.
