  • terms_of_service

More Information

All that is required is an email address and an agreement to the terms of service.

You can also send a password, but if you don't one will be generated.

New accounts will be created under the Test (Free) plan.

The body of a new account request looks like this:

    {
      "terms_of_service": "1",
      "email": "test@example.com",
      "password": "zencoderisnumber1",
      "password_confirmation":"zencoderisnumber1"
    }
  
    
      1
      test@example.com
      zencoderisnumber1
      zencoderisnumber1
    
  

The response will contain both your new API key and password (either the one sent or auto-generated):

    {
      "api_key": "a123afdaf23fa231245fadcbbb",
      "password": "zencoderisnumber1"
    }
  
    
      a123afdaf23fa231245fadcbbb
      zencoderisnumber1
