Changes to the API

19th June 2018   11:20AM  

As the move to WeatherLink 2.0 proceeds, there is an important update that will affect anyone using the WeatherLink 1.0 API. This may affect you if you use the current API to:

  • Display data on a personal or community web page.
  • Share data with a 3rd party service that is dependent on the API.
  • Access your weather data from our servers.

The current API is scheduled to be decommissioned at the end of July, 2018. The new, available in JSON and XML formats, will be the ONLY functioning API after July 2018. This API works for WeatherLink 1.0 and 2.0 and can be used immediately, but it requires the use of a unique API token.

To generate a unique API token:

  1. Log in to WeatherLink 2.0 using existing WeatherLink user credentials.
  2. Access the account information in the right sidebar, under the username and account picture.
  3. On the account information page, click Generate API Token.
  4. Fill in the required fields and click the Generate button.
  5. The unique API token will display in the API Token field.

These important changes will help make continual improvements to the API so that you can access your personal weather station data or share it with 3rd party services faster and with maximum reliability.
