This endpoint includes the following methods:

  • POST



This endpoint supports Basic authentication. To create an authentication string, combine your API client ID, a colon (:), and your client secret into a single value. For example, if your client ID is abcdefg and your client secret is hijklmnop, that value would look like this:


Next, take the string and base64 encode it.

For example, on a Mac, you can base encode the string using this command:

echo -n "abcdefg:hijklmnop" | base64

If you’re running Microsoft Windows, you can encode the string by using a Windows PowerShell command similar to this:


The resulting value (e.g., YWJjZGVmZzpoaWprbG1ub3A=) should be used in your authentication header.

If you are making API calls using Postman, select Basic Auth as your identification type, then use the client ID as the username and the client secret as the password.

Make sure that your API client has the all the permissions (for example, the right to read user profile information) needed to complete the API call.
