You need to get your platform credentials and obtain an access token so that your client application authenticates with the HERE platform.
Before you can get your credentials, you need to create an app in the HERE platform portal. An app is an application that accesses platform data and services via the REST API or one of the libraries.
here.access.key.secret constitute your platform credentials and are generated for the app that you create in the HERE platform portal. You can then download these credentials from the portal as a
credentials.properties file. The snippet below illustrates an example of the
here.user.id = HERE-88966c94-aaf1-4ae2-e4y6-6516b3f9a6c7 here.client.id = mzLcb1rB8nskvDQpCBBO here.access.key.id = BELEUUk45QdaYGgZ9A_ITMA here.access.key.secret = 108lI7w9m8G_6sIw9kng-PXGoeHQQ-cv6xByNOuMcRYixZZp... here.token.endpoint.url = https://account.api.here.com/oauth2/token
For detailed instructions on how to obtain your platform credentials, see the Get Credentials chapter of the Teams and Permissions User Guide.
Once you get your
credentials.properties file, you can proceed to the next chapter to obtain your access token.
