Authentication & Authorization

All requests to BrickLink REST API requires you to authenticate using OAuth 1.0 like - but simpler flow. You can authorize your requests by following the steps below:

Register as an API consumer

BrickLink API will assign an OAuth consumer key and consumer secret.

Register IP addresses of your endpoint client

  • Access tokens and token secrets will be issued for each of your IP addresses.
  • You can access the BrickLink resources with the token only from the registered location.
  • Since the access token has no expiration date, token secret should be stored securely. (If it is exposed, you should reissue it)
  • API Sandbox does not require IP address for convenience.

Make the request with OAuth protocol parameters

  • The parameters are sent in either the HTTP Authorization header or query part of the URL with JSON format.
  • All parameter names and values are escaped using the RFC3986 percent-encoding (%xx) mechanism.
