Authorization / Authentication

Apps using Access Token Authorization

Use a valid access token in a Authorization: Bearer request header.

See Authenticating with an Access Token for more details.

Apps using ECDSA Authentication

This endpoint requires an authsignature header, but no usersignature header. No header.user_handle field is required or validated in the header object in the request body.

See the section on ECDSA Authentication for more detail about ECDSA signature generation.

Note - We recently renamed the field auth_handle to app_handle. For backward compatibility, auth_handle is still valid but has been removed from our documentation.
