Gitpod API

The Gitpod Public API grants direct access to Gitpod data for use cases such as integration into other 3rd party applications.

Authentication

To authenticate requests, the Gitpod API utilises Access Token. In the Gitpod settings, you can view and manage your PATs.

Keep in mind that your access tokens have a lot of power, so protect them carefully! Avoid disclosing your private Access Tokens in areas that are open to the public, such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.

To Authenticate you will need to pass an Access Token as an Authorization request header bearer token in the format Bearer <YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN>.

Example cURL command:

cURL
curl -X POST \
  'https://api.gitpod.io/gitpod.v1.OrganizationService/ListOrganizations' \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer <YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN>' \
  --header 'content-type: application/json' \
  --data-raw '{}'
