ikas provides API's to make it possible for customers to create their custom integrations with Private Apps. Accessing ikas API is designed to be simple and secure. An access token should be used to authenticate with ikas APIs and send requests.


  1. Create a Private App: Create your private app in ikas Dashboard.
  2. Get Access token: Get your access token for your Private App.
  3. Call API with Access Token: Calling ikas API with the access token.
