The first step to get started with Pelcro's Open API is to authenticate your account through the platform. To do that, you'll need your Site ID, which you can find at the end of the URL for your site on the Pelcro platform in the web browser's address bar (e.g. https://pelcro.com/admin/dashboard/XX), where XX is your Site ID.
- Note that the site_id is similar to a publishable key and is not meant to be a secret, it's just meant to identify your account.
- Another layer of security is added on top of the publishable key, and that is the auth_token. You will be required to either register or log in as a user in order to retrieve the auth_token. The auth_token is then required for subsequent endpoints.
- Note that the platform API key is not required for the Open API endpoint.
Once you have both, you'll want to include the API key and Site ID within the corresponding HTTP request as you work with the API. For more information, please make sure to review the documentation for each request.
