Authentication

The REST API access is restricted and requires HTTP Basic Authentication. Authentication requires a Base64 encoded string composed of the Account Name and API Password.  

To construct a Basic Authorization header:

  1. Go to CUSTOMER CENTER > API MANAGEMENT > SETUP API.
  2. Copy the current API Password. If there is no password, click GENERATE PASSWORD.  
  3. Build a string of the form accountName:apiPassword, for example:
    • myAccount:xyzpwd123
  4. Base64 encode the string:
    • bXlBY2NvdW50Onh5enB3ZDEyMw==
  5. Supply an "Authorization" header with content "Basic " followed by the encoded string. Using the example above:
    • Authorization: Basic bXlBY2NvdW50Onh5enB3ZDEyMw==

NOTE: API access must be enabled for the Account in order to use the REST API.   Please contact your Account Manager if you are unable to access the API Setup.
