Getting started with API

Applies to: Nerdio for Azure (NFA) Distributors

Nerdio API allows distributors to create, update, retrieve usage information and generally manage their partner accounts in Nerdio.

To get started with Nerdio API:

  1. Sign up as a Nerdio distributor.
  2. Grant API access to user via Nerdio Admin Portal (NAP) -
    1. Log in to NAP:
    2. Click "NAP Users" from main menu on the left
    3. Either select an exiting NAP user or click "Add NAP user". Make sure user has role "Distributor admin"
    4. Enable "External API access" by sliding the ON/OFF button to ON
    5. Enter login and password
    6. Save changes
    7. You can now use the user credentials to make API calls


Nerdio API uses Basic Auth for authentication. Simply include username:password in the header to authenticate your API calls.


Direct all API calls to the following URL:{version.number}


Nerdio Tip
  • We recommend no more than two users with External API access privileges.
  • API users can log in to Nerdio Admin Portal and view API logs. These logs are particularly useful when you are trying to troubleshoot access errors or other issues.
