How to access Coveo Cloud API using Postman

I'm new to Coveo Cloud. Just Started evaluating Coveo cloud for one of our use cases. I am trying to learn and understand the API through the documentation provided. But i am getting struck at accessing API. Whenever i try to run an API function using Postman i am getting "Full authentication is required to access this resource".

I understood that we need to include the Authentication details in the header. But what is the the header name and how to get access/bearer token to get access for my API call. I tried to search for the documentation, but i couldn't find anything in it.

Can anyone help me out to make Coveo Cloud API calls through rest clients or is there any standard step by step docs/examples available…

Hi,

Did you read those documentation pages that explain how to create your source, create your API Key and use it afterwards?

  • https://developers.coveo.com/display/public/CloudPlatform/Push+API+Usage+Overview
  • https://developers.coveo.com/display/public/CloudPlatform/Push+API+Reference
  • https://developers.coveo.com/display/public/CloudPlatform/Pushing+Items+to+a+Source

I hope this helps

Jeff
