Authentication

API requests will require a bearer token. The way these bearer tokens are obtained will differ based on the way that you want to use the API.

As a machine

This path is to be used when integrating our API without needing separate users on the micobo Backend. An API key will be provided by us in the form of a bearer token which then can be used by your software/codebase to call the micobo API.

As a user

This path is used when integrating our API with different users. To use our API with a login process, auth provider client id and client secret will be provided which can be used to generate a bearer token for each user logging in. It will also require the users to sign up first.

Authentication as a user is only recommended in cases where you want to build your own frontend for the API otherwise we recommend using the path of authentication as a machine.
