How do I authenticate towards the OceanIO API?

The OceanIO platform uses JSON Web Token (JWT) to ensure secure information exchange.

Authentication towards the system is done by calling the a post to an authentication endpoint with the username and password created.

The password must be at least 12 characters long with a minimum of one lower case letter, one upper case letter, one number and one special character (e.g. ‘#’).

The POST the to authentication endpoint request returns a JWT token that is valid for ten hours. This means that your client component should re-authenticate before those ten hours have passed.

Subsequent calls to the platform should have both the X-Api key and an authorization header for the JWT token.

Your Implementation Manager at GateHouse will provide you with an API key as well as a username and password for authentication. You will get an API key for the Demo Environment and one for the Production Environment.
