Creating a new API client

In your wallabag account, you can create a new API client at this URL

Just give the redirect URL of your application and create your client. If your application is a desktop one, put whatever URL suits you the most.

You get information like this:

Client ID:


Client secret:


Obtaining a access token

For each API call, you'll need a token. Let's create it with this command (replace client_id, client_secret, username and password with their values):

http POST http://localhost:8000/oauth/v2/token \
    grant_type=password \
    client_id=1_3o53gl30vhgk0c8ks4cocww08o84448osgo40wgw4gwkoo8skc \
    client_secret=636ocbqo978ckw0gsw4gcwwocg8044sco0w8w84cws48ggogs4 \
    username=wallabag \

You'll have this in return:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Cache-Control: no-store, private
Connection: close
Content-Type: application/json
Date: Tue, 05 Apr 2016 08:44:33 GMT
Host: localhost:8000
Pragma: no-cache
X-Debug-Token: 19c8e0
X-Debug-Token-Link: /_profiler/19c8e0
X-Powered-By: PHP/7.0.4

    "access_token": "ZGJmNTA2MDdmYTdmNWFiZjcxOWY3MWYyYzkyZDdlNWIzOTU4NWY3NTU1MDFjOTdhMTk2MGI3YjY1ZmI2NzM5MA",
    "expires_in": 3600,
    "scope": null,
    "token_type": "bearer"

We'll work with the access_token value in our next calls.

cURL example:

curl -s "https://localhost:8000/oauth/v2/token?grant_type=password&client_id=1_3o53gl30vhgk0c8ks4cocww08o84448osgo40wgw4gwkoo8skc&client_secret=636ocbqo978ckw0gsw4gcwwocg8044sco0w8w84cws48ggogs4&username=wallabag&password=wallabag"
