8. The eBay API > 103. Authenticate Users

Authenticate Users

Use Authentication & Authorization to allow your users to pass eBay login information to your applications.

Whether you’re playing around with the eBay API for your own amusement or building an enterprise application for thousands of users, you’ll have to implement a schema eBay calls “Auth & Auth” to pass login information to eBay along with your calls.

If you only need to access the API for your own eBay account (so you can, for instance, do simple searches [Hack #104] or create listings [Hack #113] ), this process is simple.

Open the Authentication Token Tool at developer.ebay.com/tokentool, show in Figure 8-1. Select the environment you’re using, either Production or Sandbox [Hack #102] , and then paste the security keys you got when you signed up (described at the beginning of this chapter).
