The Arbor REST API allows you to access school data securely over HTTPS. Each request must be authenticated via a HTTP basic or digest authentication.

  • 1. To access school data you have to apply directly to the school and will be given a username and api key.
  • 2. To access an API sandbox for testing purposes please email our team at with a short description of what you are planning to do with the API.
  • 3. Once you have your username and API key you can use them as a HTTP username and password for HTTP Basic or HTTP Digest authentication.
  • 4. The easiest way to test your new credentials is to simply type your API endpoint into the browser address bar and press enter. The browser will then prompt you for a username and password. Type in your API username and key and press ok.
