The API requires the client to login with a
username and an
API-key through Basic Access Authentication.
The client acts on behalf of the
username supplied during authentication and receives the same permissions as if
username was logged in to the Siteimprove tools.
To illustrate the usage of the API and to get you acquainted before getting your own key, the examples in this guide use a public available username and API-key:
*protected email*:6bf4697f9d67ff008bf7f3ef0c1113e1. The API user has access to a Siteimprove account named Siteimprove API that has this documentation site as its sole website. To highlight aspects of Siteimprove we have included a test page on this site.
