To authenticate API requests, the API username and password must be sent as BASIC Authentication in the Authorization header, as defined in RFC 7617. To achieve this, the username and password are first concatenated with a : (colon) separator, and the resulting string is then Base64 encoded. Here is an example of how this process works:

  1. Suppose the API username is anyApiUser and the password is myPassword.
  2. Concatenate the username and password with a : separator: anyApiUser:myPassword.
  3. Base64 encode the concatenated string: YW55QXBpVXNlcjpteVBhc3N3b3JkCg==.
  4. Finally, include the Authorization header in the API request with the Base64 encoded string, like so: Authorization: Basic YW55QXBpVXNlcjpteVBhc3N3b3JkCg==.

Many programming frameworks will automatically handle the BASIC Authentication process for you once you provide the username and password to the appropriate request object.

Generating a Provisioning API Key

  1. Navigate to "System Setup" followed by "API Keys" from the main menu.

  2. Click on "+ New API Key" located at the top-right corner of the screen.

  3. Make sure to select "Provisioning API" in the "Services" field.

  4. Specify any IP addresses that are authorized to access the Provisioning API with this API key.

    • You can also employ CIDR notation' for specifying IP addresses (for instance, "" includes all IP addresses from to
  5. Click on "+ Create" to generate your new API Key.

  6. It is crucial to securely store the provided password upon creation, as this will be the only opportunity it will be visible to you. Once you navigate away from the page, you'll only have the option to reset the password, not view the existing one.
