Get Session Token

You must create a session token to interact with Amberflo through:
-API
-UI Kit
-AmberfloSDK.

To do so, you can retrieve it from an endpoint on your server using the browser’s fetch function on the client side. This is generally the best approach when your client side is a single page application, especially if it’s built with a modern frontend framework such as React.

For more information check API Reference

This example shows how to create the server endpoint that serves the client secret:

const express = require('express');
const app = express();
const request = require('request');

app.get('/amberflo-session', async (req, res) => {
  request({
    method: 'POST',
    uri: 'https://app.amberflo.io/session',
    body: {
      "customerId": "{{DESIRED_CUSTOMER_ID}},
      "expirationEpochMilliSeconds": {{EXPIRATION_DATE_IN_MILLISECONDS}}
    },
    headers: {
      "X-API-KEY": "{{YOUR_API_KEY}}"
    }
  }, function (error, response, body) {
        if (!error && response.statusCode == 200) {
            res.json({ sessionToken: response.sessionToken })
        }
    }
  );
})

The above example is in Node.js

You can get X-API-KEY from Amberflo site inside Settings -> Account -> API keys.

This example demonstrate how to fetch the session token with JavaScript in the client side:

const response = fetch('/amberflo-session').then(function(response) {
  return response.json();
}).then(function(responseJSON) {
  const sessionToken = responseJson.sessionToken
})
