The Meltwater API uses API tokens to authenticate requests.

If you have lost or forgotten your API token, you can revoke your existing token and create a new token as explained on the API Credentials page.

Calling the API

For API calls authentication is performed by providing the API Token as a header named apikey on the API request.

curl -X GET \
  --url "" \
  --header "Accept: application/json" \
  --header "apikey: **********"

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail.

API requests without authentication will also fail.

Using API connectors

If you are using a connector (such as for a BI tool) you will be asked to enter your API token (key).

Enter the same token as described on the API Credentials page.
