Setting up API credentials
With the Data Axle API, you can integrate Data Axle's premium business and consumer database with your internal systems and applications. Use the table of contents on the left to discover what Data Axle APIs are available. After signing up for an account, an authentication token is required before you are able to make an API request.
To create an authentication token, start from your Account Settings tokens page to generate a token. This token has no expiration. You can always delete and create new tokens in the future.
All API requests require your token to be included as the
X-AUTH-TOKEN HTTP header. The test call below returns a count but zero records. When ready to proceed further, remove the limit parameter.
curl -H "X-AUTH-TOKEN: 767b8764438e2a5fef2ca904" \ https://qa.api.data-axle.com/v1/places/search?limit=0
