# Authentication

UBER API uses API keys to authenticate requests. You can view and manage your API keys in your UBER API Dashboard.

You can choose between two different ways to use your API key: Authorization Header and GET Parameter.

# Authorization Header

GET https://{api-name}.uberapi.io/api/v1/ HTTP/1.1
Authorization: Bearer {your_secret_api_token}

# GET Parameter

Alternatively to the Authorization Header you can also attach your API key to the endpoint url.

https://{api-name}.uberapi.io/api/v1/?api_token={your_secret_api_token}
