Accessing the API

The API is made avilable via our sign up page.


All requests made to the API must include an Authorization HTTP header with your API key.

Authorization: Bearer ATLA_API_KEY

If you are using the Client SDKs, you will typically set the API key in the constructor of the client. The SDK will then automatically handle the sending of the authorization on your behalf.

Content types

The Atla API will always accept a JSON for the request body and return a JSON for the response body. You will need to ensure you set the content-type: application/json header in the request. Just like with the authorization, when using any of the Client SDKs, this will be automatically handled.
