This quickstart guide provides everything you need to swiftly get started with the Sikoia API.

1. Generate Your Access Token

Every Sikoia API call must include an access token. Follow these steps to obtain your access token:

  1. Login to the Sikoia Dashboard
  2. Under Applications, select New Secret
  3. Give your client secret a name
  4. Copy your client ID and client secret value


    Keep your client ID and associated secret secure, as they provide broad access to the Sikoia API. Do not share them in publicly visible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, etc.

  5. Make a request to the token endpoint to retrieve an access token.

2. Send your first API request

Once you have your access token, test it by making a call to the Sikoia API.

A simple request you can make is to get all cases:

curl --request GET \
     --url https://api.sikoia.com/v2/cases \
     --header 'Accept: application/json' \
     --header 'Authorization: Bearer {access_token}'

On success, you will receive a 200 status code and a response as below:

    "case_id": "37a4e7a8-000a-461f-a366-cc92d95347da",
    "name": "Implemented mobile artificial intelligence",
    "case_type": "Business",
    "stage": "New",
    "datetime_created": "2023-01-13T18:16:23.1626525Z",
    "datetime_last_modified": "2023-01-16T11:55:01.9394997Z",
    "reference": "bNNNOH2mBNXBTQB",
    "description": null,
    "source": "API",
    "ownership": null,
    "number_of_companies": 1,
    "number_of_persons": 3


If you receive a 401 response saying Invalid authorization, double check the access token is correctly copied into your request.
