Authenticating with the Candid Health API.
Candid Health utilizes the OAuth 2.0 bearer token authentication scheme in our auth flow. You obtain the bearer token for all
subsequent API requests via the
/auth/token endpoint defined below, which requires you to provide your
client_secret can be generated from the "Users & Credentials" tab by your org admin.
The bearer token should be provided in the
Authorization header for all subsequent API calls.
The bearer token expires 5 hours after it has been created. After it has expired, the client will receive an "HTTP 401 Unauthorized" error, at which point the client should generate a new token. It is important that tokens be reused between requests; if the client attempts to generate a token too often, it will be rate-limited and will receive an "HTTP 429 Too Many Requests" error.
