Bookkeep API V1

The Bookkeep API is intended to allow Partners to create functional applications and integrations, quickly and easily. The Bookkeep API is organized around REST, has predictable resource-oriented URLs, accepts form-encoded request bodies, returns JSON-encoded responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes, authentication, and verbs.


The Bookkeep API uses API keys to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API keys in the Bookkeep Developer Dashboard. Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth. Authentication to the API is performed via HTTP Basic Auth. Provide your Publishable key as the basic auth username value and your Secret key as the basic auth password value. All API requests must be made over HTTPS. Calls made over plain HTTP will fail. API requests without authentication will also fail.
