The QUIS API uses an API key to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API key in your company settings. Only your company's admins can access and manage the keys.
You are responsible for keeping your keys secure. We recommend keeping them hidden to prevent abuse. However, some applications require their use in the frontend. We therefore added a security feature to make it more difficult to abuse compromised keys.
Domain: Since v1.4.0 keys have an optional domain scope, meaning the request only returns a successful response
from a specific domain. In addition, this sets related
CORS headers to enable browser security
features and prevent simple integration on other domains. The following examples show how we evaluate different values:
- an empty entry will not send any
CORSheaders; browsers will block their frontend usage
quis.devalidates only the exact domain
developer.quis.devalidates only the exact subdomain
*.quis.devalidate any wildcard domain, such as
*.developer.quis.devalidates any wildcard subdomain, such as
Authentication to the API is performed via
body parameters. Examples are provided in each endpoint's
All API requests must be made over
HTTPS. Calls made over plain
HTTP will be redirected and may fail. API requests
without authentication will also fail.
QUIS provides a request log and statistics in your company settings. The request log contains all your valid requests made to the QUIS API, meaning for example requests with invalid params are not logged. You can export your requests as a CSV file for further analysis.
