Every request your application sends to the OpenView API must include an authorization token. The token also identifies your application to OpenView.
Here is the step by step you need to consider to begin coding your application with our API.
Step 1 - OAuth 2.0 Client Credentials Grant
OAuth is a common, token-based, secure authentication and authorization standard that is used by most Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) companies that expose APIs.
OpenView uses the OAuth2 standard for greater security and simplicity.

Step 2 - Ask for an Integration Key and a Secret Key
Get in touch with us to get your Integration Key and a Secret Key.
An Integration Key is a GUID value that uniquely identifies your app/integration.
A Secret Key is a value that is stored securely in your web server and only shared with your web server and the OpenView platform.
Step 3 - Start coding
Now it's time to code. You can see our API reference on the side menu.
