You can request a token with an HTTP POST request to our Authentication/RequestToken endpoint. This is detailed in Chapter 4 of our REST API User Guide.

The request will contain your DSS credentials in JSON form. See example below.

HTTP Request:

POST https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Authentication/RequestToken

Headers:

Content-Type: application/json
Prefer: respond-async

Request body:

{
 "Credentials": {
 	"Username": "Your Username", 
	"Password": "Your Password" }
}

If your credentials are correct, you will receive a 200 response with your authentication token in the value key.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
