When you first visit nexosis.com you will be browsing as a guest. Guests are welcome to review all of the interactive API documentation, but in order to really get to work you’re going to want to create an account and get your API keys. In fact, the “Try It” links in the interactive documentation won’t work for you until you do create an account, and you’ll see this warning:
To remedy this situation you can get started by clicking the Sign Up link in the upper right corner of the page. This will take you to the login page where you will see the following panel.
Since you don’t have an account, you can either choose to login with one of the services displayed, or enter your email address and password then click Sign Up to create an account directly with Nexosis.
3rd Party Login
To create your account by associating it with one of the 3rd party providers click on the box with the icon of the service you want to use. You will be directed to the OAuth page for that particular provider.
When you are done signing in with your provider you will be directed back to Nexosis in order to finish adding your account details. A few details are filled in for you based on your provider’s supplied account information. You can modify all but your email address.
At this point you’re almost done. We just have a few questions for you and you’re on your way back to the interactive documentation landing page. Now you can click through to the page and start using the API immediately.
Create a Nexosis Account
If you don’t have an account with one of our integrated providers, or simply don’t want to use one, then enter your email address and password and click Sign Up.
Passwords must be at least 6 characters, contain at least one non-alpha-numeric character, at least one numeric, and an uppercase and lowercase alpha.
An email will be sent to verify your email address. From the email, click Confirm my account and you will be directed to the same login page as before. Enter your email address and password then click Log In. Finally, add your name and company to complete registration.
At this point you’re almost done and we just have a few questions.
Obtaining Your API Keys
Now that you’re a registered user you can start using the API with your own code. In order to call the API you must send your API key in the header of all your requests. You can find this key under your API Dashboard, which can be found by clicking your name in the upper right-hand corner and selecting Dashboard from the drop down.
The API key will be on the right.
When you click Manage keys, you will be directed to two API keys - a primary and secondary - which are masked. To show your key and copy it, just click Show to the right of it.
You’ll notice that this is where you can manage your keys by regenerating for those times when you accidentally commit them to your git repo.
That’s it - you’re all set to go and make something smart!
