All requests to Tamr Cloud APIs are authenticated using API key credentials, attached to a request in the X-API-KEY HTTP header.

Create and manage API keys for the Tamr Cloud API in the Admin > API Keys page in the UI.

An API key is a token credential used to authenticate a particular user. Do not store API keys in insecure locations or log them in clear text. For example, do not include theX-API-KEY header in any request logging built around your API client.

The actions that a user can perform using the APIs follow the same user role and permissions model as the Tamr Cloud UI. See User Roles and Permissions.
