1. Introduction

With MyQ REST API, you can generate a new pin for a user that can then be used to log into your custom application or MyQ system. This is usually done when user is registering into the system and need an pin code to access his/her account. This endpoint can also be used with the “Forgot password?“ feature.

2. Prerequisites

REST API application in MyQ → Settings → External Systems has to have access to scope called Users.

3. Calling the API

The endpoint we will in this guide is defined as:

Endpoint:
POST /v2/users/{id}/pins

Authentication:
Grant_type: client_credentials
Scopes: [ users ]

Headers:
Content-Type: application/json
Authentication: Bearer %access_token%

Body: 
{
	"deleteOld": boolean
}
CODE

Note that the %access_token% needs to be replaced by the token you received as a response from auth endpoint.

From the definition, we can see that the definition includes one optional parameter deleteOld in the body and one required parameter in the endpoint path called {id}.

This is the id of a MyQ user. This id can be requested in multiple ways from the MyQ server. We will show how to do this in the guide Searching for a user id.

deleteOld parameter determents if old pins should be deleted. Users in MyQ can have multiple pin codes. Setting this parameter to true (by default false) deletes the old pin codes.

4. Response

Code:
2xx

Response:
{
	"pin": string
}
CODE

If the endpoint was called correctly with correct parameters. The response code should be 2xx and the body should include a JSON with the newly generated pin.
