Create your projects and apps using CARTO API keys credentials.

What is Auth API?

Auth API is the piece of the CARTO platform that enables a consistent, uniform way of accessing data, datasets, and APIs.

You are able to handle authorization either trough the UI, using your CARTO dashboard, or through the Auth API in a more programatic way. To understand the fundamentals of Auth API, read the guides. To view the source code, browse the open-source repository in Github and contribute. Otherwise, read the full reference API, or find different support options.
