Simple and secure authentication.

You'll need to authenticate your requests to access any of the endpoints in the nokori API. nokori utilizes custom header tokens for authorizing API requests.

Header Auth

The way to authenticate with the nokori API is by using your API Key. When establishing a connection using your API Key, you will need your access token — you will find it in the nokori dashboard under Security & Access in settings. Here's how to add the API key to the request header using cURL:

Example request with header token

curl -G \
  -H 'x-nokori-api-key: {{apiKey}}'

Always keep your token safe and reset it if you suspect it has been compromised.

Using an SDK

If you use one of our official SDKs, you won't have to worry about any of the above — fetch your api key from the nokori dashboard under Security & Access in settings, and the client library will take care of the rest.
