Static Data API Tutorial (beta)

The Static Data API enables you to perform build information lookups for vehicles in your fleet. The data is provided by DAT Group and we offer the convenience of retrieving the information via our platform:

  1. Set up your app container to use your DAT SilverDAT license details
  2. Use our OAuth2 endpoint to receive an Access Token for endpoint authentication
  3. Call the build information endpoint by passing in the VIN (Vehicle Identification Number)
  4. Receive the valuation of the vehicle by using the valuation endpoint
  5. The JSON response provides core build information about your vehicle

Production Applications

Note that you can only perform lookups in your live data container. Please get in touch with us on in order to start the activation process.


Lookups for VINs in most European countries are supported today. In order for you to use this service, you will need a DAT SilverDAT license. For new customers, please get in touch with us in and we facilitate this process for you.

In order for us to perform the activation, we will configure your app container with your DAT SilverDat customer details.


Each lookup will count against your billing account in SilverDAT and will be invoiced directly by DAT.

Get an Access Token

To authenticate with the static data endpoint, you first have to create an OAuth2 Access Token.

  1. Go to the "OAuth" tab in your app view
  2. Note the Auth URI and store your Client ID and Client Secret securely
  3. Use your credentials to to create an Access Token with the client_credentials grant:
curl --location '' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data '{"client_id": "a92cf969-e8ff-4ad4-a45f-42930edde12d", "client_secret": "xfVxR6xnlbeVHXkQatRx4FmxSJxFR0-M", "grant_type": "client_credentials"}'
    "access_token": "eyJhbGciOiJFUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJleHAiOjE2OTgwNzAwMDEsImlhdCI6MTY5ODA2OTcwMSwiaXNzIjoiaHR0cHM6Ly9zYW5kYm94LmFwaS5oaWdoLW1vYmlsaXR5LmNvbS92MS9hdXRoX3Rva2VucyIsInNjb3BlIjoiZmxlZXQ6Y2xlYXJhbmNlIHZlaGljbGU6ZWxpZ2liaWxpdHktY2hlY2sgdmVoaWNsZTpkYXRhIiwic3ViIjoiMjEwZmMyOTUtZDQ5OS00ZDgwLTk5MWUtZTQ3NTZlZDI3YTZmIiwidmVyIjoxfQ.2neMW6LioKvZYlbSTf-W4GwSHQmMr_8cyXfhyi4XJF-6F4HrvFNIsLlNUa93wp6BiJ_XEythR8DfWh0PrIaHrg",

    "token_type": "bearer"

See the authentication tutorial for OAuth2 Client Credentials to get the full details and integration options.

Get the vehicle build information

The general build information is retrieved via the static data endpoint. It's a simple API where all you need to do is to pass in the VIN.

# change ACCESS TOKEN and VIN
curl --location --request GET '<VIN>' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer <ACCESS TOKEN>'

You can see the endpoint specification on the Static Data API OpenAPI reference page.

Here's an excerpt from an example response:

    "manufacturer": {
        "brand": "Jeep",
        "sub_model": "80th Anniversary Plug-In Hybrid 4WD",
        "type_group_name": "Compass",
        "model": "Compass (M7)(2020->)",
        "sales_description": "Compass 1.3 Plug-In Hybrid (EURO 6d) 80th Annivers"
    "equipment": {
        "series_equipment": [
                "description": "airbag driver side/passenger side",
                "positions": [],
                "manufacturer_id": null

Get the vehicle valuation

Via a separate endpoint, it's possible to retrieve the valuation of the vehicle. In order to use the endpoint and trigger the calculation, you'll need to pass in the current odometer reading (mileage), the registration date of the vehicle and the target market for which the valuation should be calculated.

curl --location --request POST '<VIN>/valuation' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer <ACCESS TOKEN>' \
--data-raw '{"odometer": <ODOMETER>, "registration_date": <REGISTRATION_DATE>, "country_code": <COUNTRY_CODE>}'

You can see the endpoint specification and the response schema on the Static Data API OpenAPI reference page.
