Universal Card Templates

We provide a catalog of Universal Card Templates. These templates contain Cards which work unilaterally across all Channels, and can be used by a connector to display data in Card form on any Channel.

This specification defines the data structure that Universal Card Templates require, such that connectors can deliver data in that structure that can be immediately used across all Channels.

Sample collection

A sample collection of all Card Templates detailled in this reference is available for download. Each Card Template has a corresponding request, including example data and scripts. To download the sample collection, click the link below.

Run in Postman

To view the results of a sample request, open the request and click Send. The rendered Card can be viewed in the Visualize tab of the response pane.
