General information about our REST API
Using the REST API from an app
You can also get API credentials from an installed app for the Bokun REST API. This is useful if you have already integrated with the old REST API, and want to reuse this in your app.
NOTE: Your app will have to request the
LEGACY_API access scope for this to work. The vendor has to agree to give you access to the legacy API.
When a vendor installs your app, REST API credentials are automatically created to access the data of that vendor. To get the credentials, follow these steps:
- From your Partner Dashboard, click Apps, and then click to open your app.
- Click “installations”.
- Click on the vendor you want credentials for. This takes you to the installation details page.
- Scroll down to the section “Old REST API Credentials” and copy the access key and secret key.
Note: we highly recommend that you migrate to the new GraphQL API, not only because it is simpler and yet more powerful, but also because this is where all future development will be focused. So to maintain your app’s competitive advantage, please migrate to the new API.
