Authorization in JSON-RPC API

Any request to the Management Service must be authorized. You can get access credentials from your service provider.

In a response to your authorization request (Login), you will get a visa. This is a required parameter for all further requests. The visa stays valid for 15 minutes.

Each response contains a new visa. You can use visas from previous calls to keep the visa chain uninterrupted. If the interval between service calls exceeds 15 minutes, you will need to repeat the Login request and start a new visa chain.

Required parameters

Parameter Description Supported values
partner The name of the customer you want to log in under String
username Your email address for access to the service
password Your password for access to the service
