Add the necessary headers

API headers are an important part of the API request since they store extra information for each API call you make. Typically, you will use the following headers in your Kisi API requests:

  • Authorization - to store your login
  • Content-Type - to indicate the type of content submitted in the request body
  • Accept - to indicate the type of content that will be accepted in the response
  1. In the Authorization header, make sure to always add KISI-LOGIN before your API key.
  2. The Kisi API supports JSON only. This means, you need to set Accept and Content-Type to application/json.


curl --request POST \
--header 'Authorization: KISI-LOGIN <API_KEY>' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json'

Integration partner headers

Integration partners are required to include these additional headers in their requests to the Kisi API:

X-Kisi-Integration-Identifier: <name of the integration partner>
X-Kisi-Integration-Contact: <email of the integration partner>

On to the next step

You're almost there! In the next step you just need to put everything together to make your first API call.
