Authentication and Authorization

Though some of the Netify API endpoints are public, most require authentication and authorization. Generally, you will need two pieces of information to access the Netify API:

  • An API token or API key for authentication and authorization.
  • An asset key to identify the the data resource (e.g. site: Toronto main office).

Both of these pieces of information can be passed via the API HTTPS request header:

  • API key/token: x-api-key
  • Asset key: x-net-organization or x-net-site

Netify API Key

API Keys/Tokens

We offer two types of API access:

  • An account-level API token for accessing your own data
  • A vendor-level API key for accessing data via a central management system

Account API Token

The account-level API token provides developer access to your data. It's designed to let you kick the tires and provide a way to create a proof of concept. You can retrieve an API token via your Netify account:

  • Click on Account and Billing in the top menu
  • Click on Account > API Access in the left menu

The token is valid for 14 days, but you can always retrieve a new token when you log into your account. Please contact us for other API token options.

Vendor API Key

For integrators who use Netify for internal products and centrally-managed systems, we also provide private data stores and API endpoints that can be access via a vendor API key. Please contact us for details.
