General API Usage

Coginiti users can use an HTTP API to interact with Coginiti through 3rd party applications.

Base URL

All API URLs referenced in this documentation have the following base URL unless otherwise specified:



The Coginiti HTTP API requires authentication with a personal access token created in the Coginiti UI. Please follow the instructions here on how to create a personal access token.

API requests that use a token must use the Authorization header. The header's value must specify the Bearer type followed by a space and the access token: Bearer {Token}. The following example request a script execution and shows how to use access token in an API request:

curl -X POST '{hostname}/api/v1/exec/script' \
--header "Authorization: Bearer eyJhbGcibiJIUzsxMiJ9.eyJqdGkiOiI5MzQ4OTA1MC03NGI2LTExZWUtOTM0MC1iN2I2ZjFmMTA1OTUiLCJpc3MiOiJBZ2luaXR5IFRlYW0iLCJzdWIiOiJhYjljNTAzZi1lNGJhLTExZWItOWVmZS0wZmE2YmU3NDFhN2IiLCJpYXQiOjE2OTg0MDM3OTksIm5iZiI6MTY5ODQwMzc5OSwidXNlcklkIjoiYWI5YzUwM2YtZTRiYS0xMWViLTllZmUtMGZhNmJlNzQxYTdiIn0.bJCWzk3imWhpc9VFRgnfhIBI5OzyQxozVha9CHrwdKmOtxXOQv3nk8nL8BVWCf1kizNzaa6_VhYr59rqUvjURA" \

Coginiti API uses conventional HTTP response codes to indicate the success or failure of an API request. In general: Codes in the 2xx range indicate success. Codes in the 4xx range indicate an error that failed given the information provided. Codes in the 5xx range indicate an internal error with the Coginiti server.


Code Description
200 - OK Everything worked as expected.
400 - Bad Request The request was unacceptable since it didn’t pass validation (for example, missing a required parameter).
401 - Unauthorized No valid API key was provided.
403 - Forbidden The API key doesn’t have permission to perform the request.
404 - Not Found The requested resource doesn’t exist.
409 - Conflict The request conflicts with another request (for example, when performing optimistic lock check)
500, 502, 503, 504 - Server Errors
