Get started

This section outlines how to get started quickly using the On-Street Parking API. To use the On-Street Parking API, you need to supply a token in the HTTP Authorization header of your REST requests as a bearer token.

  1. Get a HERE account
  2. Create a project
  3. Get an OAuth token
  4. Send a Request

Note

This section provides information on the minimum setup required to begin quickly using the On-Street Parking API.

For more detailed information on HERE account setup, app registration, and authentication, see the Identity & Access Management Guide.

Before authenticating into the On-Street Parking API, contact your HERE representative.

Get a HERE account

If your organization has signed up for HERE Workspace or HERE Marketplace, contact your organization admin who can invite you to join the HERE platform organization established for your company. You can also request a free trial of the HERE platform if your company does not have an organization established for it. For more information, see the HERE platform pricing.

Create a project

To create a project, follow these steps:

  1. Sign in to the HERE platform using your HERE account.
  2. Open the Projects Manager from the launcher.
  3. Click Create new project.
  4. Enter a name for the project. Project names don't have to be unique.
  5. Enter a project ID. Project IDs must be unique within an organization and cannot be changed for the lifetime of the organization. Project IDs must be between 4 and 16 characters in length.
  6. Optional: Enter a description.
  7. Click Save.

Get an OAuth token

Token credentials conform to the OAuth 2.0 industry standard protocol for Bearer Access Tokens. HERE provides REST APIs to obtain these secure access tokens that may be used for up to 24 hours by your application for the purpose of authenticating requests to the HERE platform. For information on getting an OAuth token, see the Identity & Access Management Guide.

Use the token to send an On-Street Parking API request.

Send a request

The example below describes how to get parking information for a particular area in Barcelona, Spain.

Include a bearer token in your HTTP Header.

Authorization: Bearer <token>

Send a GET request as follows:

https://osp.cc.api.here.com/parking/segments
    ?bbox=41.389405513925354,2.127549994463742,41.38042236108416,2.139522979169079

The bbox parameter specifies a bounding box for a search area.

The response to the request above delivers the following high-level elements:

  • The parkingSegments array contains all parking segments in the bounding box specified in your request, for which parking availability or parking rules information is available. For each segment, the full on-street parking information is given, including parking restrictions. For more information, see Parking Segments.
