By default, a Despatch Cloud account doesn't have an API key. You can create an API key in Settings under "General Settings" > "Web Service".
The client can authenticate itself by sending an appropriate HTTP request header.
The header's name should be Authorization: and its value should be DC followed by your API key.
Authorization: DC YOUR-API-KEY
Authorization: DC AE5A7FA6E44C50C3AA7023EAB4BBD026
The above is an example using API key "AE5A7FA6E44C50C3AA7023EAB4BBD026".
