Getting started: User login

While we have been able to check the server and the data-sources status, to use other APIs we need to be authenticated. Linkurious Enterprise supports two forms of authentication:

  • HTTP cookie
  • API key (recommended)

Here we describe the first form, that you may want to use for the Admin APIs or for opening a visualization. The API endpoint to authenticate via HTTP Cookie is POST /api/auth/login. The HTTP client that we use in this example, request, is going to store a cookie from the first request, and pass it along in the second request, GET /api/auth/authenticated, that returns an HTTP 204 only if we are authenticated.
