The Panelbear API uses Auth Tokens to authenticate requests. You can create and manage them directly from the Panelbear Dashboard, under Settings > Auth Tokens.

Auth tokens

Your Auth Tokens are sensitive information, you should keep them secure! Whoever holds the token secret can access your account and act on your behalf. If you believe a token has been compromised, we recommend you immediately rotate or delete it from the Auth Token Settings page.

To use a token to make authenticated requests to our API, simply include the Authorization: Bearer <TOKEN> header on the HTTP request. For example:

$ curl -H "Authorization: Bearer <TOKEN>" \
       -H "Content-type: application/json" \

All API requests must be made over HTTPS, must include a valid auth token, and set the content type to application/json, otherwise the request might be rejected.
