The Blue Triangle API can be used to access all of your real user and synthetic data. In addition to standard data queries, with the API you can create and manage Site Event Markers, and access your Content Security Policy (CSP). In this section:
How to Connect to the API
You can connect to the API using any tool that can send and receive HTTP messages. All requests require the following 2 headers:
- X-API-Email - The email address associated with your Blue Triangle profile.
- X-API-Key - See How to Find Your API Key
For example, here's a basic example of a cURL request to our API.
curl -X GET \
-H 'X-API-Email: firstname.lastname@example.org' \
-H 'X-API-Key: 4598b7a1dd50023bedd44c83c792d051'
In this example we're asking the API for a list of all Content Security Policies under the "Demo Sports" site. To find your site "prefix," check out your profile > Default Site.
How to Find Your API Key
- Log into the Blue Triangle Portal.
- Click your Profile in the top right.
- Click View Profile.
- Find your API Key in the table.
