Lesson: Add Bearer Token to an API request

How to use your OAuth2 Token to access APIs on DigitalGlobe's GBDX platform

Any request to a GBDX API must include a valid token (also called Bearer Token). To learn how to get a token, see [Get a Token (api-key)](doc:get-oauth-token) [block:api-header] { "type": "basic", "title": "1. Add the Bearer Token to the Request" } [/block] If you're using Postman to make the API call, you can either add the Token to your environment variables, or select Headers and replace [block:image] { "images": [ { "image": [ "https://files.readme.io/5XNgbIOSkuxmOacFbFqg_header.jpg", "header.jpg", "716", "247", "#91434a", "" ] } ] } [/block] When adding your token in Postman, be sure to remove the double parenthesis and their contents, then add the token. If you have added your token as an environment variable, you don't need to do this step.
