Authentication

All API calls require authentication. The authentication scheme we use for HTTP requests, is Basic Authentication. In every request a combination of a username and a password must be provided. When manually sending an HTTP request to our API, the following header is required: Authorization: Basic $CREDENTIALS. Where $CREDENTIALS is a base64-encoded string of $SERVICE_USERNAME:$SERVICE_PASSWORD.

You can find these credentials by:

  1. Going to the Services page in your workspace.
  2. Clicking on the Setup button of the relevant service.
  3. Verifying that you are authorized to access these credentials.
  4. Copying the relevant credentials from the setup dialog.
