How To Access the Untappd for Business API
As an Untappd for Business user, you and your professional web designer have the ability to create a more custom experience for your venue by utilizing the Untappd for Business API. To access the UTFB API, follow the link above or log into your UTFB account, scroll to the bottom of the page to the row of options along the bottom of the screen, and click API in the footer bar:
This is where you will find all the information you will need to pull each element you would like incorporate into your custom website. The API documentation will explain what information can be pulled in each category.
To implement the API within your website, you will need an API token; essentially, API tokens are your password to the API. The API will require either a read only token or a read & write token to be included in all requests made in order for the request to be fulfilled.
Your API tokens are found in the admin dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the screen under Settings:
These tokens are unique to each USER. Please note that although tokens generate automatically for all users invited to a particular account, only the tokens for the PRIMARY user will be able to successfully access the API. You will need to base64 encode your email address and API token prior to setting up.
Since access tokens are tied to a user and not an account, if you have multiple accounts under your email address, you will still receive only one set of tokens which can be used across the board, even if you add locations down the line.
