API

BETA

Glo has a public API that you can utilize to fetch data from boards, interact with cards, and build up powerful integrations.


Authentication

API calls can be authenticated in one of two ways:

  1. Token in the Authorization header
    • "Authorization": "Bearer 60497d42f112db0e6d59e4754fg7c15d139aa36f"
  2. Token in the access_token query parameter
    • ?access_token=60497d42f112db0e6d59e4754fg7c15d139aa36f

Tokens can either be a Personal Access Token (PAT) or an OAuth Token


Endpoint Documentation

Documentation for endpoints can be found at https://gloapi.gitkraken.com/v1/docs/.


Pagination

For endpoints that can return a list of data, we offer pagination capabilities to control how much data you get back at once.

Parameters

Name Description
per_page How many results you want returned per page.
page Which page of results you want returned

Examples

  • First page of 25 results: ?per_page=25&page=1
  • Results 100-149: ?per_page=50&page=3

Rate Limiting

If you exceed our rate limits, the API will reject your request and return a 429 Too Many Requests.

Limits

Our limits are within a sliding time window:

  • 10 requests per second
  • 2,500 requests per hour
