Authentication mechanisms

To interact with the Management Console API, every request must be authenticated.

As a Distributor or a Channel Partner administrator, you will need first to create an API key. That API key is a bearer token which has to be included in the Authorization HTTP header of your API requests.

Authorization: Bearer <token>

Where <token> is your API key.

Regardless of which tool you are using to interact with Management Console API, please ensure to add the word Bearer followed by a single space before adding the API key into the Authorization header. If this is not added, the API key will not work and you will receive the following error: "Authorization header is missing".
