Authentication of RumbleTalk's RESTful API

To start using the RumbleTalk REST API, you must first authenticate your requests. RumbleTalk REST API offers two types of authentications:

  1. Single account holders
  2. Enterprise accounts and third parties

For single account holders

If you're simply trying to control your group chats from within your website, app, or any software you own, this is the option for you.

To get the key and secret of your account, follow these steps:

  1. Login to your RumbleTalk account
  2. Click on "My Account"
  3. Copy your Key and Secret
    * If your Key and Secret are empty, click on "Generate new token".

Once you have your key and secret, you can use them to get an access token. With that token you can perform different type of requests, such as creating a chat room, or banning an IP address.
