Okay. Are we recording now? Yes we are. Oh my gosh. I just recorded this whole thing and it wasn’t even recording it. Hadn’t started with the pistol. Sorry buddy. Kevin starting this right now. Cause Nebraska takes a long time. Here we go. Then I’ll start explaining. So we’re my Jordan. I’m from cobalt intelligence where we kind of the secretary of state API.

We’re going to Nebraska today is what we’re showing, how to use the API. If you want to get business data from Nebraska now. Um, I came over here and my previous video that I just did that doesn’t record him. I found a random business. P Pete’s are Tiesta holdings, Inc. And then I pass it in here. Now this is using the SDK where you can get here, get hub.com/cobalt intelligence slash cobalt intelligence, SDK.

And then you would just import your SOS API, passing your API key and you get good business details and it passes in business name and the state. And it will do the work. You can also search by entity ID, SOS, AB filing number. They’re all the same. I call it SOS ID now, because in Nebraska, you didn’t see it.

We’ll go. I’ll show you. It has a captcha. So it’s a little slower. So what’s over here. Pizza. I’d tease the whole bit. There things a little bit longer. Buses.

Because of that, it can take 45 to 60 seconds, maybe more, even 90 seconds to solve a capture and then get the data back. So it comes over here. We send it in there. Now you don’t have to use the SDK. If you don’t like JavaScript, if you want to use a different language, if you just hate STKs, that’s fine, but you’ll have to handle those.

We try the, which is what’s happening because it takes so long. We can’t do this in a single HTTP request. So what we. Bam done. So it sends it up. It goes over, it makes the request and then it tries to finish it in like 20, 25 seconds. And then if it doesn’t finish in time, it sends you back a retry ID right here.

And then you use that retry ID and you call back again. API gateway.co dot cobalt, intelligence.com/search. We tried D and you pass it. And then it keeps and you just keep trying with that and you say, Hey, are you done yet? What do you retry D and it’ll send it back and say, sorry, are you done yet? We tried it.

And it sends back into Sarah. Sorry. So the SDK will handle all of that for you, but if you want to be manly, if you want to do it all yourself, that’s fine. I’m not offended. And there’s our business right here. So that’s this business right here. Pizza, RTS to holdings. Let’s make sure everything matches it.

Yep. Look, see, Louisiana is our rate foreign address city or foreign Corp is our physical address. City is Iowa. The city name is Iowa in the state of formation is LA crazy. So there we go. Lav in Louisiana, not the city of LA. I didn’t think LA was actually the state. Okay. That’s Nebraska. What the capture with the retract?

Use it go get an essay. Oh, if you want API key, come over here. Cobalt intelligence.com/sick day state click the get API key button we charge per request. Go that the stop button work.
