How to get your token

The credentials (client_id and client_secret) are a set of access keys provided on the platform and need to be used to get a token.
(Those credentials are strictly confidential and must remain secret).

To get your credentials, first, connect on SupplierXM, go to your profile, and create new access keys.


Don't forget to copy your client secret before closing the modal, you won't be able to get it later

Then perform an http query to get an access token specifying

  • your credentials
  • grant type ("client_credentials")
import json
import requests

# Data for authentication, update it with your own credential
authentication_payload = {
    "client_id": "{your client id}",  # replace with your client id
    "client_secret": "{your client secret}",  # replace with your client secret
    "grant_type": "client_credentials",

# Call the authentication API
response =

# Response contains:
# {"access_token": "{your access token}", "type": "JWT"}

access_token = response['access_token']

# We will use this access_token to access SupplierXM APIS
headers = {
    'Authorization': 'Bearer %s' % access_token
curl '' -XPOST \
-d'{"client_id": "{your client id}", "client_secret": "{your client secret}", "grant_type": "client_credentials"}'

>>> {"access_token": "{your access token}", "type": "JWT"}
