Using the API access token

Link to the api documentation: http://apidocs.vistadatavision.com/

The token is used as a basic Authorization Bearer token.

The URL to the API is: <localVdvUrl>/api.php/v1/<requestName>

Example get sites request for the VDV system https://demo.vdvcloud.com/vdv.php/ would be: https://demo.vdvcloud.com/api.php/v1/sites

Note, the maximum requests made per minute is 200.

Example using Postman

/GET request: https://demo.vdvcloud.com/api.php/v1/sites

Header: Authorization: Bearer <Token>

Returns the id's and names of all available sites for the Access token.
