Client-side Setup

Backendless requires that all REST operations include application ID and REST API key into the API endpoint URL. The general structure of the endpoint URL is:

https://api.backendless.com/<application-id>/<api-key>/<operation-specific-path>

The values for <application-id> and <api-key> are needed so that Backendless can identify the application and ensure that a legitimate client makes the request.

Application ID and API Key

Values for the application-id and api-key headers must be obtained through the Backendless Console:

  1. Login to your account and select the application.
  2. Click the Manage icon from the vertical icon-menu on the left.
  3. The App Settings section is selected by default. The interface contains values for Application ID and API keys for each supported client-side environment.
  4. Use the Copy icon to copy the value into the system clipboard.

Make sure to use the "REST API Key" for the api-key argument.
