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>"


  • 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.



curl -X POST --header "Content-Type: application/xml" -d @mytokengenerator.xml

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