API Console

To use the TempoDB API console, you will need an api key and secret. If you don't have an account, you can signup here.

After you signup, create a database to receive an api key and secret. These are unique to each of your databases and can be found on the manage page. Enter your credentials by clicking the Authentication dropdown and selecting Basic HTTP. Use your api key as the username and api secret as the password.


  1. Select the api endpoint using the sidebar on the left.
  2. Parameters in the url that are wrapped in curly braces (e.g. series key or id) need to be changed by you.
  3. Query string parameters can be adjusted by clicking the gear icon on the right of the url bar. Note: not all query string parameters are required. You can turn off all of the parameters by clicking the checkbox on the left of the list.
  4. For the time being, the console only supports read api calls. You will need to put data into your database using one of the client libraries before you can read anything back out.
  5. If the api call returns an empty list (for example reading the series list), check that the query string parameters are set properly.
