Can't authenticate to REST API??

Discussion created by kinginky on Sep 20, 2013
Hey all,

Although I'm not at all new to programming/REST, I am new to ArcGIS.

I'm trying to access the online REST API to do some geocoding and to use the GeoEnrichment service. I have a developer account setup along with one application. I am able to generate and receive an access token, both for my username/password, as well as for my client ID/client secret. However, when I am making requests to the API, I'm not certain on how to send the token back, and I can't find it mentioned anywhere in detail in the documentation.

I have tried passing the token back in a GET request as a URL parameter. I've tried the name access_token=, as well as simply token=, but to no avail.

Can somebody point me in the right direction here?
