Getting Started

To get started with our API, we provide comprehensive documentation on how to consume our API. Our API implementation follows the JSON API Standard. We suggest to have a look at that first, if you are unfamilliar with that.

Making requests - in a nutshell

All requests you send to our API follow the same schema.

1. Get your access key

If you didn’t register yet, please do so here. After signing in, you will find your access token to send requests to the API.

2. Add request headers

Don’t forget to add these headers for every request you submit to the API.

Content-Type application/vnd.api+json
Authorization Bearer [Your API Token]

Find out more about authentication and authorization.

3. Submit a request to our API

If you want to talk to our Robo Accounting API, choose either one of these requests.

POST Upload a new document
GET Request a specific document
GET Query documents

4. How to test API calls

Our preferred tool to test any API communication is Postman. It is also available as an extension for Google Chrome, if you don’t want to run it as a seprate application.
