Getting started with REST API from .NET client

I’m struggling to get started accessing the MIRO Rest API from a windows client.

I have created a Developer Team board to test, which seems to give me some of the authorization data which the API docmentation describes. I was rather hoping to get into all the authentication stuff later on - right now, I need to investigate how easy it is to pull Miro data from my little test board.

Does anyone have a C# (or better still Vb.net) example of reading a developer board ? 

Is this even possible from a Windows machine which isn’t running a web server?

Hi Ian! 

You are able to test our API directly from our documentation, and even send requests from it! 

For example, you can send a request to get items on a board from here: https://developers.miro.com/reference/get-items

You will need to input specific parameters, like your auth token and a board ID

You are also able to generate code snippets for multiple languages, including C#! 

 

For testing the API, you will need a valid auth token, but you can easily generate one via Miro’s UI, when creating an app: https://developers.miro.com/docs/rest-api-build-your-first-hello-world-app#step-4-install-the-app

You can simply copy the value here and use it while testing. 

Hopefully this helps!
