Authorization and Usage
Upon signup with AWS, you will gets access to a dataset containing API endpoints and credentials that allow access to our Market Data API. Authorization is based on AWS credentials and can be done in two ways:
If you are directly making HTTP requests - you need to sign them manually with time-sensitive AWS Signature (calculation). We also recommend using Postman to interact with the API; it generates AWS signatures from IAM credentials.
Rapid API is a very user-friendly platform with robust documentation. We only support Rapid API keys for authentification. Once you subscribe through Rapid API, head to the “Endpoints” tab. It includes navigation, a list of endpoints, documentation of the currently selected endpoint, and code snippets to help you get started with your application. The code snippets are available in many different programming languages. From here you can also test the API endpoint directly in the browser by changing the input for the endpoint. If you generate a code snippet within the browser, your app key will automatically appear in the generated code. You can also find the API key on the Security page of your application on the Developer Dashboard.
