In this walkthrough, we will go over some basic concepts of the Risk Cloud API, including authentication, pagination, getting data, and updating data.
The Risk Cloud API uses OAuth 2.0 for authentication, using bearer Access Token in the Authorization HTTP header. To obtain an API Access Token and get started building out your integration, reference the guide Risk Cloud API: Authentication.
