Authentication and Authorization

For security, licensing, and tracking purposes, you’ll need to obtain an authentication token and create an account before you can use the REST APIs.

Note: You must have a paid subscription to access our vehicle collections. For more information, contact us.

Generating Authentication Tokens

To generate an authentication token, you send a request to the Arizona Classic Vehicles web site from your browser using this URL:

https://azvehicles.com/api/get_nonce/?json=get_nonce&controller=user&method=register

The web site returns/displays a response in your browser that includes the token. This is an example of a response. The text in bold highlights the token:

{“status”:”ok”,”controller”:”user”,”method”:”register”,”nonce”:”a2c3ec8e25“}

To generate an authentication token:

  1. Open a web browser.
  2. Paste the URL shown in the first example in this section into the Address bar and hit the Enter key.

A response appears in your browser, like the second example in this section.

Important!: Write down the token value. You’ll need to use this value in the next section.

If for some reason you want to generate a different token, and the system returns the same value as before, clear your browser cache and generate the token again.
