For API authentication, we support key authentication. API keys can be added using the nuu:bit portal. Under Admin and API Keys, a new key can be generated. The API request is secure since all communication with the nuu:bit API service happens over SSL/HTTPS.
Different permissions can be set on the API key. The permissions are Read, Modify, Delete, Purge, Reports and Admin.
Please find the following example for using the nuu:bit API on the command line using CURL.
$ curl https://api.nuubit.net/v1/accounts -H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Authorization:X-API-KEY 32fbd222-3333-1234-abcd-044556677788"
If you're sending too many requests, too quickly, you will receive a
