Cloudbeds is continuously working in improving Cloudbeds PMS. We are happy to share with you another enhancement in the system: the Self-service Cloudbeds API for properties. This article walks you through the steps on how to request access.

If you are a commercial technology company, the information in this article doesn't apply to you. Read our Technology Partner API Integration Guide.

What is the Self-Service API?

Getting API access allows you to access your account's data programmatically and integrate with your local systems or build extended functionality to advance the guest experience.

API is primarily a self-service feature. It is required that you work with highly experienced developers. If you still need guidance or support after your developer has reviewed and analyzed the documentation here: Property and Group Account API Access you can email us:

Step 1 - Request access to Cloudbeds API

Submit an API Access form by following the steps below:

  1. Open Manage tab
  2. Click on API Credentials under Apps and Integrations menu
  3. Click on Submit API Access Form
  1. Fill out the form
  2. Click Submit Form to get API access
  3. Cloudbeds Billing team will reach out to you to inform the pricing options (if applicable) and confirm your request.

Step 2 - After Getting Access

  1. Click on +New Credentials
  1. Add a unique name for the API key set (ex. Green Parrot Website Plugin).
    • Provide descriptive context as you may have many API key sets in the future
  2. Add the Integration type
  3. Redirect URI - redirects the user after the authorization step of the third-party application authentication procedure
  4. Save

Now you have your pair of property API credentials.
