  1. Select the environment you will be working in from the CMR environments table below.

        2. On a terminal window execute the curl command for the environment you selected.

Example

curl -X POST --header "Content-Type: application/xml" -d "<token><username>sample_username</username><password>sample-password</password><client_id>client_name_of_your_choosing</client_id><user_ip_address>your_origin_ip_address</user_ip_address> </token>" https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/legacy-services/rest/tokens


Note:

  • Depending on the environment you selected, the Base API URL may be different from the example.  If so, replace the purple text with the correct Base API URL.
  • If you are embedding the token REST messages into a programming language, create an HTTP message and place the same components from the curl example into either the message header or body.
  • If you have special characters in your password, you will probably need to escape them using a backslash.

 

If you don't want to escape any characters, but still want to use curl - implement the "file input" option to create a file that looks like the following:

 

Example

<token>

<username>sample_username</username>
  <password>sample-password</password>
  <client_id>client_name_of_your_choosing</client_id>
  <user_ip_address>your_origin_ip_address</user_ip_address>
</token>


Note: mytokengenerator.xml can be used as a file name, which simplifies the command.  See example underneath step 2 for original command and the example below for simplified command.

 

Example

curl -X POST --header "Content-Type: application/xml" -d @mytokengenerator.xml https://cmr.uat.earthdata.nasa.gov/legacy-services/rest/tokens

Note: if using a programming language, just place the curl example parts into the correct http message header or body locations.

 

Provided a successful response is received, an HTTP success status code of 200 is supplied with the response. Below is a sample response from the curl call - where the value in the ID tag is the token you will use as the value in the Echo-Token header:

<?xmlversion="1.0"encoding="UTF-8"?>

<token>

  <id>75E5CEBE-6BBB-2FB5-A613-0368A361D0B6</id>

  <username>sample_username</username>

  <client_id>client_name_of_your_choosing</client_id>

  <user_ip_address>your_origin_ip_address</user_ip_address>

</token>
