Getting API access

The CAT Admin API requires the federation NRO admin to be in possession of an API key. The API key is a long random string which needs to be used when executing API actions. The key is also bound to the federation; i.e. you can only create or query IdPs in your own federation with it.

API keys are distributed from the eduroam Operation Operations Team to federation admins NRO administrators on email request. Please contact eduroam Operations for your Admin API key; API keys from version 1.x continue to be valid for version 2.0.
