API Documentation and Best Practices

We built our API to be open and ready to serve new ideas as fast as our brilliant customers can dream them up.

First and foremost, our API documentation can be found here.

API Best Practices

To make the most of the API, BL.INK recommends the following as best practices.

Each user should use a unique account and API access token for every integration

Each time the API is used for a new purpose (ex. social publishing tool integration, a sharing tool on a website, etc.), create a dedicated BL.INK account for that API integration. 

Each account will be assigned a unique API access token, which can be found on the My Account page. This will make reporting simple and straightforward in the long run since it’s easy to see which integrations generated which links.

For instructions on how to find the API key, check out this article.

Sign up for API notifications

Sign up for API notifications on the API documentation page. This will enable us to send important information on updates we make to our API. 

Use SSL for all requests


Never publish the API access token or share it insecurely

Do not send API access tokens in emails, or share them publicly in any way. If you feel the API access token has been potentially compromised, please let us know and we will generate a new one.

Feel free to contact BL.INK support if you have any additional questions about our API.
