To obtain your access token before requesting any other API endpoint, you need two parameters.
Type: Query String
This parameter specifies the OAuth2 grant type you would like obtain your access token with. We currently support only client_credentials type of grant, but we may add new grant types in the future. For any requests just contact us at [email protected].
The default and only value is "client_credentials".
Type: Header parameter
This parameter is the HTTP Basic Authentication header. Here is the Wikipedia page to save you some trouble. :)
Basically, this header parameter is constructed by encoding your application ID and application secret key with base64. Here is an example for the value of this parameter:
You combine your application ID and secret key with a colon between them:
Then you encode this with base64:
Final header adds the static word "Basic" and must read like this:

The API explorer widget does not work well with authorization. We suggest using the Authorization Tool and then follow the link generated for you to experiment on this documentation.
