Can I create additional crawlers programmatically with the API and extract with the API?
Currently, Octoparse API just allows to retrieve extracted data, get task information and control tasks/crawlers (start/stop extraction). Whenever you need to create/configure a crawler with Octoparse, you have to do it on the task configuration interface within the app.
Tip: Currently Octoparse API is only available to Premium (Standard/Professional) users. For more about Octoparse API, you could refer to our API document Octoparse API Documentation
