We encourage you to use OAuth2 as the API authentication mechanism, we’ll slowly drop support for OAuth1 and Basic Auth in the future.

To get developers starting with Poken API we created a simple JS API client using OAuth2 authentication: 


Please note the “Command line” field which will generate the CURL syntax you can use for testing in a shell.

Basic AUTH

To get started with the API certain calls can be made directly from a web browser.

The browser will prompt to enter user and password credentials, which are those of a Poken account. Please note that the http header “Accept” must be sent in the request, see Data Formats.

Where applicationId  and applicationSecret are those which have been provided by Poken.
