Authentication

The W3lcome API uses API keys to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API keys in the W3lcome Dashboard with admin role.

Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.

Authentication to the API is performed via HTTP Basic Auth. Provide your token key as the basic auth value. You do not need to provide a password.
