Introducing the Developer Portal

Developer Portal

In August of 2022, we released the Herald Request Builder (HeRB), a fully interactive demo of our application, submission, and quote endpoints.

Now we’ve released a Developer Portal with full User Management, allowing customers to add members of their company to integrate with Herald and monitor activity across all environments. Any Herald customer has access to these features, accessible at dashboard.heraldapi.com.

These features include:

  • User Management: Every customer can assign admins and team members. Admins can add and remove users to their account.
  • Testing: You can create applications, submissions, and quotes in a friendly-UI in your Sandbox environment. This can help you get familiar with the appetite, question set, quote details, and more. Clone your quotes to make changes and re-submit for de-bugging.
  • Quote Activity: Every quote you create via Herald’s API, across all environments, is accessible in your Quotes page. You can filter to see quotes by producer, state, class code, and more. Click into any quote to see the full quote details, like the price, provided files, and submitted application for the the quote!

As you expected, all of these features are built on top of Herald’s API! As you expected, all of these features are built on top of Herald’s API! See all of the Developer Portal features.

Expanded Coverage Parts for Management Liability

In August of last year, we released the first two coverage components, D&O (Directors & Officers) and EPL (Employment Practices Liability), across 5 Management Liability carriers.  We are excited to announce we now support the remaining coverage parts, Fiduciary Liability, Crime, and Kidnap & Ransom, for our integrated carriers offering these coverage components.  Look our for additional integrated Management Liability carriers including Bind in the near future!

Features and Improvements

  • We enhanced our data cleaning to include translations for certain Unicode characters that may cause errors, such as [.h-code]”[.h-code] (Right double quotation mark) to [.h-code]"[.h-code] (Quotation mark).
  • We deprecated risk parameter [.h-code]rsk_mfmh_fills_propane_tanks[.h-code], and now collect that information on a different risk parameter to minimize the question set for certain Class Codes.
  • We migrated to a new Institution-API for one of our BOP products.
  • We now support a re-rating for Cyber Products that require underwriters review.
  • We now support submitting multiple domain addresses for certain Cyber Products.
  • We reduced the question set for certain Cyber Products by removing 10 risk parameters.
