There are 3 ways to Connect to the Platform API

  1. SDK M2M Login - Long-running SDK jobs require API authentication.
    M2M Login is recommended when:
  • Wanting to run commands on the platform without an ongoing internet connection
  • Wanting to run API commands directly from an external system to Dataloop
  1. The Dataloop Swagger UI - It offers the ability to perform API requests such as GET, POST, PUT, PATCH and DELETE to different endpoints in our backend services like projects, datasets, tasks, etc.
    In order to use the Swagger UI you will need to be logged in from another tab. An authentication will be completed with the logged in user.

  2. From an External System - Connect to the Dataloop API environment from an external system you need to get a JWT token.
    Use the JWT for every HTTP request to the platform (with bearer authentication).
    This is recommended if you wish to use your prefered API Platforms like Postman or Insomnia.
