Create Access tokens are essential for authenticating API requests in Magento 2. They provide secure access to the Magento API resources. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to obtain an access token:
Table of Contents
Prepare the Request
To get an access token, you need to send a POST request to the authentication endpoint. In this case, the endpoint is
http://example.com/rest/V1/integration/admin/token. Make sure you have the necessary credentials to authenticate the request.
Set the Request Headers
Include the necessary headers in your request. The
Content-Type header should be set to
application/json to indicate the payload format.
Provide Request Parameters
In the request body, provide the required parameters. Typically, you need to include the admin username and password to authenticate and obtain the access token.
Send the Request
Use your preferred method or tool to send the POST request to the specified endpoint. Ensure that the request payload is correctly formatted and includes the necessary parameters.
Handle the Response
Upon a successful request, the response will contain the access token as the response body. Handle the response to extract and store the access token securely.
Example of Create access token
Here’s an example of how the cURL command can be used to obtain an access token:
curl -X POST \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
In this example, the request is sent to the
http://example.com/rest/V1/integration/admin/token endpoint with the admin username and password provided in the request body. The response will contain the access token.
By following these steps and using the appropriate authentication endpoint, you can successfully obtain an access token in Magento 2 API. Remember to handle and store the access token securely and use it in subsequent API requests to authenticate and access the desired resources.
