How authentication works

This guide will show you how to retrieve an API key and how to authenticate it in our Swagger API reference in order to make a first call.

Sign up for an Bliq studio account

Go to Bliq studio and sign up for an account there. Signing up is free. All you have to do is provide your name and Email. After creating an account, you can sign up here.

Find the user icon in the upper right corner of the application and select “Account”.

Find your API key

Scroll down to the bottom of your account section to locate and copy your API key.

Note: Your account is restricted to 10,000 requests a month. If you need more, please contact us using support@bliq.ai .

Authenticate for testing

To get started with our API, go to our API reference site. Find the “Authorize” button on the right side. Insert your API key and click “Authorize”. You are now all set to send request via Swagger to check out the Bliq APIs.


Get Parking POIs close a position

To demonstrate how to work with the Bliq API reference, let’s get the parking POIs around a certain position. Select the “/getParkingAreasForPosition” method for this and click “Try it out”.

You can either use the standard request or input your own data. Click on execute to send your request.


If everything goes well, you should see a response similar to the one below and yield a 200 response code. Congrats, this was your first “Hello World” with the Bliq Park API!
