API Authentication

You must be a verified WhosOnLocation user to make API requests. This is an SSL-only API and is authenticated using basic authentication. You must be a verified user to make API requests. The authenticate header takes the API key as the username and the password is not used.

Your API key

API keys are managed in the WhosOnLocation Account interface. Users with the User Role of ‘Account Owner’ or ‘IT Support’ can access the API by navigating to:

Tools > Account > API

The page lets you view, add, or delete keys. More than one key can be active at the same time. Deleting a key deactivates it permanently. When creating a key for the first time the User will need to accept the API Terms of Use.
