What needs to happen


Register client application.


Obtain an access token.


Make requests.

Register client application

Before a client can start making requests to the ECHOplatform REST API, they must register their application with Barracuda.

Barracuda Networks requires the following information:

  • A contact name
  • Company
  • Email address
  • Name of the client’s application

If the client is not a Barracuda Networks customer, then a redirect URL also must be registered for authentication.

Barracuda supplies the client with a client ID and secret code, which are both a 32-digit hexadecimal number.

Obtain an access token

Using the registered client ID, secret code, and redirect URI, the client requests an access token from the authorization server.

Make requests

Using the access token granted by the authorization server, the client then can request resources from the ECHOplatform REST API. When the access token expires, obtain a new access token before making additional requests.
