SalesHood's Integrations API supports 2 authentication methods:

  • API Key
  • OAuth 2.0


Generate an API Key

The Integrations API key can be generated by a company admin user in the Company Settings of your SalesHood instance.

Using the API Key

To authenticate your API requests using the API Key in the headers, include the following header in your HTTP requests:

Authorization: Bearer YOUR_API_KEY

API Key Security

  • Keep it Secret: Treat your API Key like a password. Do not share it publicly or hard-code it in client-side code.
  • Use HTTPS: Always use HTTPS when making requests to ensure that your API Key is transmitted securely.
  • Regenerate if Compromised: If you suspect your API Key has been compromised, regenerate it immediately in your developer portal.

OAuth 2.0

SalesHood uses OAuth 2.0, an open specification, to authorize API access. Once completed by a user, the OAuth flow returns an access token to your app. This access token can be used by your app in subsequent API calls for that user. It should be passed with the Authorization HTTP header value of Bearer
