Create OAuth 1 API tokens for your app

  • Updated

If you have an app that you want to use with Bynder, you can generate an API token for the app to use when requesting access to Bynder.


Make sure you have this feature enabled for your account. Contact your Bynder Customer Success Manager for information and help with the setup.

Before you begin

You need Admin settings rights to perform this task. Go to Settings > Users & rights > Permission management to verify your rights. You also need to have one of the following rights enabled for your account:

  • Manage portal settings: enables you to access the settings page for setting up API tokens.

  • Create Bynder API tokens: enables you to create consumers and tokens.

  • View Bynder API tokens: displays a list of all the tokens created for your account.

  • Revoke Bynder API tokens: enables you to delete selected tokens.

Set up API Tokens

  1. Go to settings_menu.pngSettings > Advanced settings > Portal settings

  2. In the Account section, select API tokens.

  3. Click Create new consumer.

  4. Enter the name of the consumer to use the API token.

  5. Click Create.

  6. Copy the consumer key and consumer secret.


    When you click OK the data disappears.

  7. Click Create new token.

  8. Enter user.

  9. Select the Consumer from the dropdown menu.

  10. Select the Integration Type from the dropdown menu.

  11. Click Create.

  12. The Token and Token Secret will appear.


    Make sure you copy this information because once you click OK the information will disappear.

  13. Click OK.


You can now provide users with the required data to connect to Bynder through an API.

You can create multiple tokens for a consumer. To delete a token, click help_bynder_com_admin-guide_Create-API-Tokens_htm.png next to the token you want to revoke.
