Debricked APIs

Expand your use of Debricked with the help our APIs.

Debricked is an API-first service, allowing for all actions inside the UI to be scripted. This allows you to integrate our service into your code, CI pipelines, and more.

All users with the role with the API access scope have access to our open API. This is also the API used by the Debricked CLI.

Important API Resources


The API uses JWT-tokens for authentication.

Generate JWT-tokens using your username and password

In order to get a JWT-token you need to provide your username and password to:

Using curl, the call would look like this:

curl -d _username=YOUR_USERNAME -d _password=YOUR_PASSWORD

If successful, the response will contain your token:


Note: In case your username and/or password contains special characters, you need to url encode and surround it by quotes to ensure that it works as expected. See example:

curl --data-urlencode '' --data-urlencode '_password=password&'

Generate JWT-tokens using a long-lived access token

If you have added an access token, you can use it to get a short-lived JWT token by sending the access token to:

Using curl the call would look like this:

curl -d refresh_token=YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN

Using the tokens

Keep in mind that the long-lived access token, and the short-lived JWT-token are different tokens! You must always exchange your access token for a JWT-token to use the API.

The JWT-token has a lifetime of about an hour. If the JWT-token is invalid (e.g. if it has expired) a 401 status code will be returned. You should therefore implement a way of automatically getting a new token every time you receive a 401 status code from any API call.

When you have your token you need to pass it to the Authorization HTTP header with the value Bearer YOUR_VERY_LONG_TOKEN on each API call.

For example, using curl:

curl -H 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_VERY_LONG_TOKEN'
