  • Authentication

If you dont have your codeflow server up and running, this method can be used to generate access token for calling authenticated API.


1. Gather information

You will need the following information for your app .

client_id     - This is your app "Consumer key"
client_secret - This is your app "Secret key"
redirect_uri  - This is your app "OAuth redirect URL"

Since we are emulating the codeflow server - edit your app and set the OAuth redirect URL to: http://localhost/


2. Get authorization code

Generate authorization code open the following URL in your browser. Be sure to replace {consumer_key} with your app Consumer key.{consumer_key}&response_type=code&redirect_uri=http://localhost/&state=verifyMe&scope=profile+openid+customer+accounts+payments


Log in using one of our predefined sandbox users and grant the requested scopes. For this example your can use the following user.

User:     jongunnars
Password: pVvfBnvZ8X0rjOtC70


You will then be redirector to an URL on localhost. From the URL you will need to copy the authorization code found in the ?code= section.



3. Exchange oauth code for access token

Now exchange your authorization code for an access token.

curl -X POST \
-d 'grant_type=authorization_code' \
-d 'code={authorization code copied from URL}' \
-d 'redirect_uri=http://localhost/' \
-d 'client_id={consumer_key}' \
-d 'client_secret={consumer_secret}'


This will return your tokens.

  "access_token": "eyJhbGciOiJSUz...UhVobA",
  "refresh_token": "Eui8cZiBuC44C...BSh6iR",
  "id_token": "eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1Nr...2luGMA",
  "token_type": "Bearer",
  "expires_in": 7199


4. Use your token

Now you can call authenticated API using the access token like this.

curl -X GET \
-H 'Accept: application/json' \
-H 'apikey: CxOAVlDYSyw1bIyYbbvCAKVG1zEKp14E' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGciOiJSUz...UhVobA'

The only APIs available in this initial launch is open APIs. You don't need to authenticate, only use an API key. Simply put your API key in a header called "apikey" where the value is the actual API key.

No, not at this time. The initial launch of the API only includes open APIs.
