Easy description to get an accessToken

Step 1.

Info: The Bearer Token is now valid for 7 days and no longer 21 days, so adjust the code accordingly.

Get your ConsumerKey & ConsumerSecret by creating your App in "My Apps"

Step 2.

Encode ConsumerKey & ConsumerSecret (output will be used in curl-request):

$ echo -n ConsumerKey:ConsumerSecret | base64


Step 3.

Use Encoded ConsumerKey & ConsumerSecret in curl-request:

curl -X POST \
  '' \
  -H 'Authorization: Basic <Encoded Consumer Key & Consumer Secret>' \
  -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' \
  -H 'Content-Length: 0' \
  -H 'Postman-Token: [token]'


Step 4.

Use received access_token in curl request:

curl -X GET \
  '' \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer <access_token>' \
  -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' \
  -H 'Postman-Token: [token]'
