PREVIEW RELEASE

Version 3.0 of the RegattaCentral APIs uses the industry standard OAuth2 protocol to provide secure authorization to endpoints requiring authorization. Therefore before a secured call can be made, an authorization token must be requested and for all secure calls sent as an Authentication header.

To use the OAuth2 apis, you will need a client_id and client_secret which you can request by email support@regattacentral.com. In addition, you will need to have an account with www.regattacentral.com.

WARNING: Your client_id, client_secret, username and password must always be kept secure and not shared with anybody or exposed over the Internet.

Request Token

This service must be called prior to all secure calls in order to retrieve an authorization token. This authorization token can then be passed as an Authorization header to all secure calls. The results also includes a expiration time for the authorization token. A refresh token is also included in case the authorization token expires prior to the finishing the use of the API, the refresh token can be used to obtain a new authorization token (see Refresh Token).
