But what is it? I've just done a quick google search and seems to be the REST API resources that are related to configuring a new client/partner. Is that right?

What is all this talk of partner api? Its really confusing me. This is a client -> server / request -> response situation. There is no partner API!! (unless i've really missed something)

I think i will make the client send it with each request. Seems more RESTful providing everything in one stateless request. Its also easier to inform clients of any resource which may now require a template email URI by returning a validation error if they don't provide one in the request.

I'm not 100% sure on your question, can you rephrase?

Sounds good. How could I implement? Maybe API URI is /v1/email/businesses/{business_name}/enquiries/{enquiry_id}. This link is added to email. Clicking the link does take a user to the API, but API looks up the client preferences and then redirects accordingly? It then just means the client has to setup all their preferences in advance, or maybe just provide a domain and then defaults are applied?

Thanks. That makes much more sense.

The entity that owns the URI /v1/businesses/{business_name}/enquiries/{enquiry_id} is the entity associated with 'business_name'. The URL you have posted above is the client URL i.e. browser side client

its still very confusing. You seem to be suggesting that my API calls some client API? Is that right? When i say 'client' i mean the code that calls the REST API. Example could be some single page AngularJS app. So these clients are not some business partner I've teamed up with. They are browser side clients.

really confused by your answer. Can you use the same terminology throughout e.g. 'client' and 'API' instead of 'you', 'they', 'application', 'partner'...
