Authentication

In order to use the Daisycon API you will need to have an advertiser or publisher account (or both) with API permissions. If you don’t already have an account, you can visit Daisycon.com to create an account.

We have two ways of authentication:

1. Authentication using a token (recommended)
The first way you can authenticate is creating a authentication token using our authentication services. Click here to see this API-services in action. The token is valid for 30 minutes.

authenticate

2. Basic access authentication over HTTPS
Our API also supports authentication using basic OAuth over HTTPS.

Example using Curl:
curl https://services.daisycon.com:443/categories -H “Authorization: Basic dXNlcm5hbWU6cGFzc3dvcmQ=”

or

curl https://services.daisycon.com:443/categories -u username:password
