CreditRiskMonitor API

Authentication

To use the API you must have a login to https://api.creditriskmonitor.com/. Using this login for the /v1/Users/Login endpoint will return a SessionKey on success. All other endpoints expect this SessionKey to be sent in the header and will return an error if it is missing or invalid.

Example of a Login request

                
curl -d "Username=[USERNAME]&Password=[PASSWORD]" -X POST "https://api.creditriskmonitor.com/v1/Users/Login"
                
            

Returns

                
{"Success":true,"Data":{"SessionKey":"1/1/2019 2:00:00 abcd1234ABCD1234abcd1234ABCD1234"}}
                
            

All requests will return a Success and Data field.
If Success is True the request succeded and the Data field will have the resulting data.
If Success is False the request failed and the Data field will have a description of the problem.

A subsequent request to the News endpoint would be

                
curl -H "Authorization: Bearer 1/1/2019 2:00:00 abcd1234ABCD1234abcd1234ABCD1234" -X GET "https://api.creditriskmonitor.com/v1/News"
                
            

Rate Limit

There is a rate limit based on the type of user account you have.

User Type Number of Requests
Ordinary User 10/hr
API Developer 200/hr
API User infinite
To request a developer account visit the Request Developer Access page.

Each request will return three headers that describe the rate limit values.

                
curl -i -H "Authorization: Bearer 1/1/2019 2:00:00 abcd1234ABCD1234abcd1234ABCD1234" -X GET "https://api.creditriskmonitor.com/v1/News"
                
            
                
X-RateLimit-Limit: 200
X-RateLimit-Remaining: 176
X-RateLimit-Reset: 1924
