API Authentication

Search and Match API uses private user key (index key) to authenticate requests. To authenticate the call to an API endpoint, there are only 3 steps:

  • Get access to the RChilli My Account.
  • Login to the My Account portal and get the user key.
  • Authenticate search and match API calls with the user key (index key).
