The SalesBinder API requires you to authenticate every request to all endpoints using an API key associated to your user account. Authentication is done using basic HTTP Auth to keep things simple and secure.
First Things First: Generate an API Key
Generate a new API Key by logging into your SalesBinder account and going into your “Profile” page. You’ll find a button at the bottom that says “Generate New API Key”, click it and you’re done. There’s more info here in case you’re already lost.
Authentication for API endpoints:
https://[apikey]:x@[subdomain].salesbinder.com/api/2.0/[method].[format] Authorization Type: Basic Username: API Key Password: x
Notes: The API can be formatted in either JSON or XML (.json or .xml). The password is literally the letter "x". The username is your API Key.
