You'll need to authenticate your requests to access any of the endpoints in the CUFinder API. In this guide, we'll look at how authentication works.

API Key authentication

To access the APIs provided by CUFinder, you will need to obtain an API key, which serves as the authentication mechanism for secure and authorized access to the platform's services.

This API key acts as a unique identifier that establishes the identity and permissions of your application, ensuring that only authorized users can interact with the CUFinder APIs. By requiring an API key for authentication, CUFinder maintains a secure and controlled environment, protecting the privacy and integrity of the data exchanged between your application and the platform.

Get your API key

To obtain your API key, you must first log in to your CUFinder dashboard, which serves as a centralized hub for managing your account and accessing the various features and services provided by CUFinder. Once you have successfully logged in, navigate to the designated section or settings page within the dashboard where API key management is available.

Within this section, you will find the option to generate or retrieve your unique API key. By clicking on the corresponding button or link, CUFinder will generate a secure and individualized API key specifically tied to your account and application.
