API Authentication

The Cloud Dataprep REST APIs support the following methods of authentication.

Required Permissions

Authenticating user must be a valid user of the deployed workspace of Cloud Dataprep by TRIFACTA INC..

API Access Token Authentication

API access tokens can be acquired and applied to your requests to obscure sensitive Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and are compliant with common privacy and security standards. These tokens last for a preconfigured time period and can be renewed as needed.

NOTE: Access tokens are required for use with the API endpoints. Access tokens can be created by the project owner only. Other users of the project cannot use the API endpoints.

Basic Steps:

  1. You submit a request to create a new access token.
    1. You can create and delete access tokens through the Settings area of the Cloud Dataprep application. See Access Tokens Page.
  2. With each request, you submit the token as part of the Authorization header.
  3. Continue using the token. As needed, you can create and use additional tokens. There is no limit to the number of tokens you can create.

For more information on this process, see Manage API Access Tokens.


Since each request requires credentials, logging out is not required.
