Before you can make an API call, you need to have the proper credentials in order to authenticate yourself. Get started by navigating to Settings > Developer and clicking the + icon on API Keys.
Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your API Key and Access Token. Once you set up your token, you'll see a pop-up with your alphanumeric key and token.
