Data Lens Developer's Guide


Data Lens is a secure application, and credentials are required for access to the Data Lens REST API as well as the Data Lens JavaScript API. Specifically, you need to include application credentials and an access token in all requests to the Data Lens REST API.

To be able to gain access to Data Lens services, you need to carry out the following preliminary steps:

  1. Register a HERE Account.
  2. Obtain application credentials.
  3. Request access to Data Lens.
  4. Obtain a Data Lens access token.

We explain these steps in detail in the sections that follow and then demonstrate authentication using Postman, Python and JavaScript.

Once you have obtained access credentials, you need to provide them with each request against the resources supported by the service for the purposes of authentication.
