Log in requirement
Before being able to request information from Assets Server by using a GET request or make changes to the system through a POST request, a log in to Assets Server is required. For information about the available APIs for logging in, see Assets Server REST API - introduction.
POST requests only
This REST API only accepts POST requests, not GET requests. Also, the POST request needs to include a cross-site request forgery (csrf) token.
The csrf token is a unique code which, by including it in the request, also makes the POST request unique and therefore much more secure.
The csrf token is obtained by first logging in to Assets Server through a POST request. The response that is received will include the csrf token which can then be used in subsequent POST requests as a http header:
For more information including examples, see Assets Server REST API - Performing a POST request with a csrf token.
