Taxonomy API Authentication

Taxonomy API uses private user key (ApiKey) 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 Taxonomy API calls with the user key (ApiKey).

How to get user key

In order to set up your access to Taxonomy API, you need to get API user key using My Account portal.

  1. Enter your Email and Password to log in to the RChilli My Account partner portal. You can also Sign Up to register a new account or log in using Office 365 or Google accounts as necessary.
    Note: Contact for My Account portal access, subscription plans, pricing, and for any further support.

  2. On the My Account tab, select the Dashboard on the navigation panel and click symbol on the User Key field to know your user key.
    Note: On this page, you can also get other details such as Parsing Expiry Date, and Search & Match Expiry Date.

  3. Authenticate API calls with the user key (ApiKey), for more details on Taxonomy endpoints and parameters, see Taxonomy Endpoints, Method and Parameters.

Refreshing your user key

  1. Go to My Account and enter the login details such as email id and password.
