This page will help you generate a basic authentication token for use with Facets API requests.

How to Authenticate your API requests?

Facets API employs a Basic Authentication Setup. This setup necessitates that users have a username and a password to execute API calls, in addition to any parameters specified to the endpoint.

The username is your registered email ID with which you access the Facets Control Plane. The password, on the other hand, is a unique token generated within the Facets Control Plane. For detailed instructions on how to generate a token, refer to the section below:
