All API requests must be authenticated with a valid OAuth token. Tokens are tied to user accounts; if you’re just using the API for a single user or organizer, then follow Personal Tokens; if you’re using the API for many Eventbrite users, then follow OAuth Token Flow.
As many of our API users are just doing an integration for a single user or organizer, we have a streamlined workflow for users to get an OAuth token just to represent themselves.
All you need to do is visit your apps page, and make sure you have at least one app created. Every app you own will have a “Your OAuth Token” entry; click “Show” on that to reveal a premade OAuth token for your account.
OAuth Token Flow¶
If you’re accessing the API on behalf of users other than yourself - for example, if you’re a service building on top of Eventbrite - you’ll need to do the full OAuth token flow for each user that you want to access us on behalf of.
Visually, the users will go from your website or application to our website, confirm that they want to allow access to your application, and then we’ll redirect back to you with a token you can store and use to access the API on their behalf.
