The site linked to, https://lds.org/mls/, is the Member and Leader Services download site. This site is the source for downloading MLS and other software for administrative computers. There are no web services at that site.

The Leader Portal is provided on lds.org in the Tools menu. No software needs to be downloaded and installed from the MLS download site to gain access to the Leader Portal.

Visit https://lds.org/mls/mbr/services/report ... l&lang=eng with the header Accept: application/json and say that again.

https://lds.org/mls/mbr/services/rep...ctAll&lang=eng is not the same site linked to before. It is an entirely different site. And I do not have access. This last link appears to be part of the Leader Portal.

There are indeed web services at addresses under that URL. But as you said, they are not documented. It seems likely that they are not documented for a reason. And if they are not documented, it's entirely possible that even if you could reverse engineer them, you could not depend on them being consistent.

I'm not sure what you are trying to do, but you also should be aware of the policy on using web services, as stated by the Church's CIO:

Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.

I agree. The reason may of course be that no one has got round to documenting them. I thought asking on here would be a good place to start.

Thanks, I am aware.

I suspect they are sufficiently documented for the folks who are authorized to make use of them. You'd have to be a developer of an authorized project to have access to it.
Have you searched the Help Center? Try doing a Google search and adding "site:churchofjesuschrist.org/help" to the search criteria.

So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

Perhaps. I try not to assume so much.
