The service validates email addresses under the internet domains used by Brigham Young University. It accepts a character string as input which it compares against records for the buy.edu and byu.net domains. The system response either confirms that the address string submitted is associated with a BYU user account or an error message that the address is not recognized.
API methods check whether a submitted string identifies a properly formatted email address in domains managed by BYU. It then checks the specific address against the university's login databases to confirm whether it is registered for a user account there or whether it forwards to a valid BYU address.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
we require the entry of some changelog text before that change can be saved. This way, we have a great audit trail of all
activity surrounding the asset. For each asset, the changelogs begins with the moment an asset is approved for publication on ProgrammableWeb.
If you spot an error in our data and believe that a record needs to be updated in some way,
the ProgrammableWeb team would very much like to hear from you at firstname.lastname@example.org
