API: Intake



API for Intake functionalities uses an authentication mechanism similar to OAuth2. Each of your requests to the API must include a bearer token in the "Authorization" header. Currently, the API only supports the "client credential" grant type.

Client Credentials grant type

Use the code below to obtain an access token that lets the client authenticate itself:

curl 'https://<INSTANCE_URL>/api/v2/oauth2/token' \
  -X 'POST' \
  -H 'accept: application/json' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -H 'Authorization: Basic <CREDENTIALS>' \
  -d '{
    "grant_type": "client_credentials",
    "scope": "<INSTANCE_URL>/survey.create <INSTANCE_URL>/"

In the response you will obtain an access token, expiration time, and token type.

To see content in a specific language, you need to send the language code as a custom HTTP header called X-USER-LANGUAGE.

Example of a request using Polish:

curl 'https://<INSTANCE_URL>/api/v2/surveys/1a815f9c-8fe2-4a31-9728-550b92c4b077/questions/current' \
  -X 'GET' \

If the language is unspecified, surveys will be presented based on the ACCEPT-LANGUAGE header. More information: (opens in a new tab)

Supported languages: Polish (code: pl), English (code: en).
