Authentication

Authentication is done via the header Authorization with a bearer token.

API keys are managed through the admin console. To get access to the console get in touch. API keys are prefixed with sk_, for example: sk_{nanoID}.

Example:

$ curl -H 'Authorization: Bearer sk_NefoODAZoyA45KsLsQu6J' 'https://api.objective.inc/v1/.../'

Passing an invalid API key results in an HTTP 401.

Example:

$ curl -v 'https://api.objective.inc/v1/indexes/idx_-bIFxdfVdtFttrf84C44s/search?query=test' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer sk_does-not-exist'
