Short.io API docs are based on using an API key. With the API key, you are allowed to use Short.io API docs and features. Moreover, API keys let check for what purpose the API is used. This helps to avoid facing frauds.

For passing the authentication process, you need to send an API key as Authorization header. Each registered user will find his/her API key in the “Integrations & API” page.

Note: API is available in every price plan. The only requirement is to be a Short.io user.

With Short.io API, you can request the following operations:

  • to request a domain list;
  • to add/delete a domain;
  • to apply Short.io features;
  • to get the original URL;
  • to shorten a long link;
  • to shorten links in bulk;
  • to edit the title or short path of the original URL;
  • to delete a URL;
  • to observe the statistics of the shortened URL.
