API Authenticate edit

For some API features you’ll need to authenticate. You can do this with an Api-Key-header where the key starts with sa_api_key_....

In your account settings you can create this key.

To test if your API key works correctly you can replace the example values of this cURL example with your own:

curl "https://simpleanalytics.com/private.example.com.json" \
     -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     -H 'Api-Key: sa_api_key_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx'

For some API calls you’ll need a user ID:

curl "https://simpleanalytics.com/api/websites" \
     -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
     -H 'Api-Key: sa_api_key_xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx' \
     -H 'User-Id: sa_user_id_00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000'

Your user ID is shown in your account settings.
