Authentication

Outline:

Waldur MasterMind exposes REST API for all of its operations. Below are examples of typical operations performed against APIs. To run the examples, we are using a HTTPie.

Almost all of the operations with API require an authentication token. Below we list two methods on how to get it.

Authentication with username and password

If your account is allowed to use username/password and the method is enabled (e.g. in dev environment), you can get a new token by submitting a username/password as JSON to a specific endpoint.
