Memsource Legacy API

Authentication API v3

Important:

Memsource Legacy API will be deprecated in 2020. It is disabled for all new organization accounts created after May 7th 2019.
Please use Memsource REST API instead.

Login

Most APIs require an authenticated user who is identified by a token. To obtain a token, call the following API and use the returned value in all subsequent calls. Each token is valid for 24 hours.

When 2-factor authentication is enabled and a code parameter is missing or invalid, the server returns the following error: AuthAccountTwoFactorProtected.

action: api/v3/auth/login
    userName                    string                             
    password                    string
    code                        string                   O                  // if 2-factor authentication is enabled

response: JSON
    {
      "user": {
        "id":30,
        "firstName": "Admin",
        "lastName": "Istrator",
        "userName": "admin",
        "role":"Admin",                                 // ADMIN, LINGUIST, PROJECT_MANAGER
      }
      "token":"30-a3bf70333f8f1316cb7841cd774c9ce8",
      "expires":"2014-12-12T16:55:02Z"
    }

Login Another User

This creates a token for a user within your organization; only Admins may use this API call.

The token can be used to log the user in to the Web User Interface using the following URL. After the token is used in authByToken, it is deleted and cannot be used any longer.

    userName                   string

        "userName": "linguist",
        "role":"Linguist",                                 // ADMIN, LINGUIST, PROJECT_MANAGER

      "expires":"2014-12-12T16:55:02+0000"
    }

Logout

action: api/v3/auth/logout
    token                      string

response: empty

Who Am I

This API call can be used to test if the previous auth/login call went ok. Although this API does not provide any essential functionality, it may still be useful during development.

action: api/v3/auth/whoAmI
    token                      string

response: JSON
    {
      "user": {
        "id":30,
        "firstName": "Admin",
        "lastName": "Istrator",
        "userName": "admin",
        "role":"Admin",                                 // ADMIN, LINGUIST, PROJECT_MANAGER
      }
    }
