The Locksmith API
Locksmith comes with a JSON API that you can use to read your account's configuration.
Accessing the API
There are three endpoints available:
- GET https://uselocksmith.com/api/:version/shop.json
This endpoint returns Locksmith's entire configuration for your store.
- GET https://uselocksmith.com/api/:version/locks.json
This endpoint returns an array of all locks in your Locksmith account.
- GET https://uselocksmith.com/api/:version/locks/:id.json
This endpoint returns data for a single lock in your Locksmith account.
Locksmith's API versions correspond directly with Shopify's API versions, and are supported in the same way. Read more about Shopify's API versioning
To retrieve a list of current Shopify API versions – and therefore a list of Locksmith API versions – see https://app.shopify.com/services/apis.json.
Accessing Locksmith's API requires two headers:
x-shopify-shop-domain– must be of the format "example.myshopify.com"
x-locksmith-access-token– must be an enabled access token, generated in your Locksmith settings
Using cURL, one might access the API this way:
curl \ --header "x-shopify-shop-domain: example.myshopify.com" \ --header "x-locksmith-access-token: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" \ https://uselocksmith.com/api/unstable/shop.json
Generating an access token
To access this API, generate an access token. You can find these toward the end of your settings area:
Use the "Add access token" link to add your first token.
Once created, an access token may be edited to enable/disable it, or to change its name. It may also be deleted.
