API Databank Documentation
Getting an API key
To request an API key, please contact your Account Manager or our Support Centre. Eligibility for API provisioning depends on your organisation’s subscription. The key provided will be tied to a new, separate technical user account, which will maintain the same subscription profile as your organisation’s master account.
Alternatively, if you already have an account with access, you can use the login functionality of the /users endpoint to request your key directly. Read below more for information on endpoints.
