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.
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.
