Getting an Access Token

To access the API, you will need to provide an access_token to authenticate with Webflow. You can acquire that token in one of two ways.

Making Authenticated Requests

Once you have an access_token, you can authenticate your HTTP request by including the token as an authorization header, or as a query-string parameter.


Setting the token as an HTTP header is strongly preferred.

HTTP Header

The following header should be used:
Authorization: Bearer <token>

curl \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer <<apiKey>>"

Query String

If you cannot set the access token in a header, it also may be passed in as part of the query string with the parameter access_token.
