    Done Signing Up? Now you can invite all of your team members to your Developer Organization. Adding co-developers to your company's Developer Organization allows the members the use of the APIs and plans that have been made available to your Developer Organization. The head Developer Organization name should be your company's registered name or similar identifier.

  4. Register an application

    Before you can use an API you have to register your application. When you register an application, the application is assigned a unique client ID and client secret. You must use the client ID when you call an API that requires you to identify your application by using a client ID, or a client ID and client secret. Check the API description for the details.

  5. Subscribe to a plan

    Finally, now that your application is registered, you need to subscribe to a plan. The plan determines the number of API calls that your application can make. Some plans are free and no approval is required, some require approval, and some require approval and a monthly subscription. Think about what you need and choose the most suitable plan.

  6. Get an access token

    Most of our APIs require some form of authentication and authorization. We chose to use the OAuth 2.0 protocol. When you make an API call, you'll need to pass along your access token. Your My Digi-Key credentials will be required when you initially obtain your access token. Please ensure you have a My Digi-Key account. Our OAuth 2.0 documentation provides all of the details.
