Getting Started - Complyt API

A quick intro for direct integration | Make your first request

Authentication

Request

Use Complyt API to obtain Auth0 bearer token. To do this, you’ll need to send a POST request to complyt token endpoint, passing your client ID and client secret in the request body. Here’s an example cURL command to do this:
curl --request POST \
--url 'https://demo.complyt.io/v1/token' \
--header 'content-type: application/json' \
--data '{
"clientId": "A414......................GsFf87t",
"clientSecret": "HHCv..............gQ491nSVed35"
}'

Response

If the request is successful, you’ll receive a JSON response that includes an access token. The access token is your bearer token, which you can use to authenticate requests to your M2M application’s API. Here’s an example response:
{
"access_token":"eyJhbGciOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9...",
"token_type":"Bearer",
"expires_in":86400
}
password1
That’s it! You can now use the access token as a bearer token to authenticate requests to your M2M application’s API.
info
Please note that the token expires in 24 so either re-generate it in every request or re-generate it daily

Create Customer

Request

Use the access token obtained from the previous step to make the following request to create a customer in Complyt:
curl -X 'PUT' \
'https://demo.complyt.io/v1/customers/source/1/externalId/999444' \
-H 'accept: application/json' \
-H 'Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGc...iOiJSUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9...' \
-H 'Content-Type: */*' \
-d '{

This API request uses the HTTP PUT method to create a new customer in the Complyt system. The request includes the customer details in the JSON payload of the request body. The -H 'Authorization: Bearer ...' header includes the access token obtained from the previous step, which is used to authenticate the request to the Complyt API.
