Getting Started

Before using the API, you need to do a few things:

  1. Create a User Account (or Login)
  2. Request an API Key
  3. Know how to make use of a RESTful API

Once you've done those, ensure that all of your API Calls contain the following in their header:

Api-Key: [API-KEY]

(where [API-KEY] is your API Key, e.g., Api-Key: csIKSDiGEIuIFLzO5HdX96fX7RQSDCIzSagf6pXbZpI=)
