Get API Token


The API Token facilitates integration of Bridgecrew to other platforms and tools, such as Checkov, CircleCI and Github Actions.

You can also use it to interact with our APIs.

Get an API Token

To get a Bridgecrew issued API token:

  1. Sign up for Bridgecrew. This is free-of-charge.
  2. From Integrations, select API Token and copy the API key.

To integrate the Bridgecrew CLI run the following command:

pip install checkov

checkov -d <directory> --bc-api-key <key> --repo-id <repo_id> --branch <branch>

To authenticate an API request, pass the API token in the Authorization header:

Authorization: YOUR_API_TOKEN
