Dynamic provides a robust API that allows developers to securely access their dashboard environment’s data and programmatically update settings relevant to their Dynamic-powered application.


All APIs in this section require a bearer token used to authenticate requests and make sure the caller is authorized to access the resources in the requests.

Please follow these steps:

Get an API token from Dashboard

  1. Go to the your environment’s dashboard Developer Tab
  2. In the “API Token” section, click on “Create Token”
  3. Provide a name for the token. The best practice here would be to name the token after the system you intend to use this token with. A few examples: “Mycompany Admin”, “Ben’s personal token”, or “background-job service”.
  4. Make sure to copy the API token before closing the modal. This is the last time you will have access to the plaintext API token! Dynamic DOES NOT have access to the plaintext API token anywhere. If you lose this API token, you will need to create a new one.
  5. The token should start with the prefix dyn_ followed by 56 alphanumeric characters.

Using the API token

Use the token generated through dashboard to programmatically access Dynamic’s API by adding it to the Authentication header of your HTTP request.


curl \
--location '<<sandboxEnvironmentId>>' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer ADD_YOUR_DYN_TOKEN_HERE'

Standard errors

  • 400 - Bad Request. The form of the request is invalid. Please check that the path parameters, query parameters, or the request’s body contains the correct and expected information defined in our docs.
  • 401- Unauthorized. The endpoint that is being accessed requires an Authorization header.
  • 403 - Forbidden. The token authorized for the HTTP call does not have access to the resource defined by the endpoint (eg. the specific environment, allowlist, user, etc.)
  • 404 - Not found. The path of the requested resource could not be found. Please check that the URL path is correct or that the ID provided is correct.
