API / API Authentication

The StatusDashboard API supports the following authentication methods:

Session Authentication
If you are already authenticated in the Statusdashboard portal in a web browser, you can access the API using your existing authenticated session.  This is useful for exploring the different API endpoints via your web browser.
ApiKey Authentication
Provide your StatusDashboard user account's API key in an HTTP Authorization header on each API request.  The format of the authorization header is as follows: Authorization:ApiKey username:<apikey>
