Information on the Fairing API authentication.

The Fairing API uses API keys to authenticate requests. You can you view your API Keys in your Fairing dashboard under the Account tab. Our API is still in beta, so if you don't see the API Keys section in your account page, please reach out.


Your API key is supplied via the Authorization header. Provide your API key as the value of the header, "Authorization: YOUR_SECRET_KEY"

Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.

All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail. API requests without authentication will also fail.
