API Authentication

Before calling an api, api authentication must be performed first. Steedos supports multiple ways to authenticate apis, making api calls easy and flexible. Moreover, it can also achieve functions such as single sign-on, validating login status, and logging out, making interface calls even more flexible and convenient.

Call the login api to obtain user identity

POST /accounts/password/login

"user": { "email": ""},
"password-unencrypted": "xxx"

This interface returns the token.

Use ${spaceId} and ${token} to verify

Authorization : Bearer ${spaceId},${token}

Use current browser user identity verification

The current browser has user login information stored in the localStorage, which includes:

  • steedos:userId
  • steedos:token
  • steedos:spaceId

Use ${spaceId} and ${token} to verify

Authorization : Bearer ${spaceId},${token}

Use administrator API key verification

If you need to call the interface uniformly as an administrator, you can log in to the system as an administrator, and on the Settings-Advanced Settings-API Key menu, get the administrator's API Key.

Authorization : Bearer apikey,${apikey}

The administrator API Key needs to be properly kept and this method can only be used for server-side calls.
