An access token is required to access authorized fields on the schema. The /token endpoint is used to resolve an API Token into an access token. An access token can be used for any number of requests, until it expires.

  1. Grab your API Token from your account page.
  2. Suppose your API Token is: WHOSGOTS-684D-4B64-B0D2-THEBEEFBEEFS. You would use your API Token to request a fresh access token like this:
curl -H "Authorization: Bearer WHOSGOTS-684D-4B64-B0D2-THEBEEFBEEFS" \-X POST \https://api.fontawesome.com/token
{
  "access_token":"123.abc.456def"
  "expires_in":3600,
  "scopes":["public","kits_read"],
  "token_type":"Bearer"
}
  • access_token: the value of the access token to use in the Authorization header of subsequent query requests
  • expires_in: number of seconds until this access token expires
  • scopes: the list of authorization scopes granted by this access token
  • token_type: token type which would appear before the access token in the Authorization header, followed by a space, like this:
curl -H "Authorization: Bearer 123.abc.456def" ...
