Before getting started with council's eServices, ensure you have addressed the following:
- understand how you will integrate, are you a:
- plumbing business seeking direct integration with council's application programming interfaces (APIs)
- third party app developer exploring options to integrate with our APIs
- service agent or backflow tester wanting to submit service or test reports online.
- register your interest, and we will:

Our developer portal enables interested developers to access APIs published by council. The APIs provide direct integration to council's registers.
Once successfully registered to our developer portal for test, select available services from the products tab to integrate with. Services currently available through the developer portal are:
- OSF Inspections API for onsite sewerage facility services reports, and
- PLBF Inspections API for backflow test reports.
Click on the service you would like to integrate with, and then subscribe. You will receive an email notification acknowledging your subscription request with council.
Once approved, access your subscriptions and developer guides from the APIs tab.
- contact council's development services to send a test request for validation
- review your integration with an assigned council staff member, and
- upon sign off, request access to council's developer portal for production.
Request access to our production environment, once you have addressed the following:
