API Access to Trailhead Data

I wanted to figure out if there is or if there is any plan to open challenges data via an api so that we can reward employees for completing trialhead data.

That's a great use case, let me check this internally and I will update you as soon as I hear back.

Any update on if this is available?

We would also be interested in this functionality.

My site gets some of the data, but not thru an API. It just looks at publically available data.
Brian Oconnell 23Brian Oconnell 23
Michael that looks cool.  How did you do it?
I would think that what the current Leaderboards are doing is parsing the HTML returned when opening up a Profile page with a specific ID, since they require one to actively input the ID for parsing.
It would be nice to have a sort of either Official Leaderboard or a simple "Ranking" API webservice to query and filter on the badge acquisitions to build our own :). .

That is exactly how mine works. I parse the html returned for all the values on the list. It's a little tedious, but it is now fully automated and i now have 90% code coverage!

un-Official Trailhead Leaderboard Code Coverage

Some of the returned HTML is a little weird. I've seen hidden sections that still show in Progress for superbadges when the person in fact has the superbadge. That one thru me off.

As I've mentioned in other posts, I did this mainly for my own edification to understand more about Apex, Visualforce and test units. I suspect an "Official" Leaderboard tool may come out in time.

Hi Michael.. Looks neat! Can you provide the source to your project? 
Michael RuckerMichael Rucker
I'm hoping to put together something soon. Others have asked also. I'd like to put something on the Appexchange, but I haven't figured all of that out yet.

I am really looking forward to having the data available through API. Does Salesforce have anything available (documentation)?

Hi, Is there some Trailhead API?

We Salesforce Ghosted this post. I would love some APIs so I can integrate our Employees with Salesforce knowledge to in our current Train Documentation Application.
