NAM Console API - Authentication

Applies to NAM 2019

To authenticate access to NAM via our NAM Console Public REST API, you can use basic authentication (user name and password) or get a public API token from the NAM Console.

To obtain a public API token from the NAM Console:

  1. In the NAM Console, open Security ► API tokens.
  2. If no public tokens are listed in the Public API tokens section, generate a token.
    1. Click Generate token.
    2. Provide a useful name for the token.
      For example, the name of the person, department, or company to whom you will distribute the token.
    3. Click Save.
  3. Select the API token you need.
  4. When the edit buttons are displayed for that token, click Copy to copy that token to the clipboard.
  5. Paste the token into the application that will use it to authenticate communication with NAM.
