Altoviz API access are secured by :

  • a TLS connection using a Sectigo Limited certificate with an RSA key length of 2048-bit
  • an API key authentication mecanism

How to get an API key ?

API keys are centralized in the Altoviz application itself. Go to the Settings, API access. Here is a direct shortcut

You can create a new API key or re-generate an existing one.

Create a new Altoviz API key using the app


Copy the API key before closing the form as you will not be able to access it again.

How does it work ?

Every HTTP request must have a header named x-api-key with a valid API key.

Get information about the API server
curl -H "x-api-key:cddb5157-12be-42a9-985a-4501c6e6e2fa"

Basic authentication

Basic authentication is also supported using apikey as user and the API key as password.

Get information about the API server
curl -u "apikey:cddb5157-12be-42a9-985a-4501c6e6e2fa"


In case you really can't use a header, you can send the API key using a parameter named apikey. We discourage this method by default as the API key appear in logs, web analytics service or caches.
