Hi, I am new to Companies House API.
I want to authenticate my application with companies house API to get/use companies House website data in my salesforce application. For this, I have to authenticate my application with companies House API.
How can I do this?
Once you have done this, you will have all the experience you need to be able to call the APIs from your own code. The following forum post should also help you, but I would recommend you search the forum for “authentication” topics, in case your issue has already been solved:
Curl will be generating the correct HTTP Authentication header (Basic authentication) for you, and your HTTP client library should also do this, but if it does not and you find you have to do this yourself, the APIKey authorisation documentation explains how - there is a link to the Wikipedia page showing how a HTTP Basic access authentication header value is created.
