Getting an Access Token

To get an access token, call POST /api/authorize/auth/ with credentials (which you've got from us) containing the email and password needed in the request body. The host address should be the API address (the one you've also got from us).

	"credentials": {
		"email": "{{user_email}}", // your login
		"password": "{{user_password}}" // your password

The successful response will return a pair of tokens:access_token and expire_token.

access_token is a key that grants you access to system resources. To access a resource, you need to add your access_token to the header.

headers = {‘ X-Forensic-Access-Token’: <access_token>}

access_token is time-limited, the limits depend on the account type.

  • service accounts – OZ_SESSION_LONGLIVE_TTL (5 years by default),

  • other accounts – OZ_SESSION_TTL (15 minutes by default).

expire_token is the token you can use to renew your access token if necessary.

Automatic session extension

If the value ofexpire_date > current date, the value of current sessionexpire_date is set to current date + time period that is defined as shown above (depending on the account type).

Token Renewal

To renewaccess_token and expire_token, call POST /api/authorize/refresh/. Add expire_token to the request body and X-Forensic-Access-Token to the header.

    "expire_token": "{{expire_token}}"

In case of success, you'll receive a new pair of access_token and expire_token. The "old" pair will be deleted upon the first authentication with the renewed tokens.
