Authentication 🔗

POST /api/public/login/ HTTP/1.1

    "email": "",
    "password": "password"

HTTP/1.1 204 No Content
Set-Cookie: token=dac20c82c79a514d572b4f5d7e11cb53;; Max-Age=31536000; Path=/
Vary: Cookie, Accept-Encoding
login("", "password")
# See ?login for options, including how to store your credentials
# in your .Rprofile
import pycrunch
curl -c cookie-jar
    -X POST
    -d '{"email": "", "password": "password"}'
    -H "Content-type: application/json"

# The above command will perform a login and save the login cookie to a file called 'cookie-jar'.
# After this, you can access the endpoint via 'curl' commands (POST, GET, PATCH), as long as the '-b cookie-jar' flag is present.  Note, -b not -c.  -c saves cookies, -b submits cookies from the existing file. It is good practice to delete this file when you are done.

Nearly all interactions with the Crunch API need to be authenticated. The standard password authentication method involves POSTing credentials and receiving a cookie back, which should be included in subsequent requests.

The client should then store the Cookie and pass it along with each subsequent request.

Failure will return 401 Unauthorized.


Replace “” and “password” with your email and password, respectively. Refer to the password policy below for more information.

Crunch also supports OAuth 2.0/OpenID Connect. See the public endpoint reference for more on how to authenticate with OAuth.
