Authentication

On this page we'll explain everything you need to know in order to make authenticated calls to the Meltwater Analytics APIs.

Prerequisites

Before getting started, make sure that you have the following information available:

  • Your APIKey (this will provided to you during on boarding or can be regeneated with the assistance of Meltwater support)

Accessing the API

To access Analytics API endpoints, you need to provide an APIKEY header as part of the request.

Example API Key: apikey: e708864855f3bb69c4d9a213b9108b9f

curl -X GET 'https://api.meltwater.com/v1/analytics/123456/top_tags' \
  -H 'apikey: **********’

You will receive an HTTP 401 error message, and a relevant error message should you try to use the wrong API key in an API call.
