Using an API key

A primary use case for API keys is to allow scripts to access Pathfinder’s REST API.

For example, when using curl, you could do something like this. The --insecure parameter is required only if you use a self-signed certificate:

curl --header 'Authorization:API-KEY' --insecure https://SERVER-ADRESSE:8087/api/v1.0/info/status/ping
