Authentication

The Sofar API uses token-based authentication. To get started using the Sofar API, you'll need to retrieve or generate an authentication token.

Get your authentication token in the Weather Dashboard here.

The authentication token is tied to your account, and will grant API access to all resources owned by our shared with your account. You can regenerate the authentication token at any time from the dashboard account profile section, but this will invalidate all previous tokens.

All of the Sofar APIs will accept a valid API token in the token query string parameter of each request. The Spotter Sensor and Wave Spectra API will also accept a token in the request's HTTP header.
