Here you'll find guides, resources, and references to build with Vital.
To get started with the Vital API first create an account, by signing up to the waitlist. Once approved you'll have access to the Vital Dashboard. You'll be given access to two environments with the corresponding credentials.
Test environment for data
Live environment to use with customers
Identifier for your team
Private secret for your team
Once you have these credentials you can begin using our APIs.
Create User Key
To allow a user to connect to the API, first create a vital_key using the client_user_id. Typically this will be a user ID number from your application. Personally identifiable information, such as an email address or phone number, should not be used in the client_user_id. This should be created initially when a user signs up.
A unique ID representing the end user. Typically this will be a user ID number from your application. Personally identifiable information, such as an email address or phone number, should not be used in the client_user_id.
Once you have the user_key you can use Vital Link. Vital Link is the client-side component your users will interact with to link their accounts to Vital and allow you to access their accounts via the Vital API.
Vital Link can easily be integrated into your applications via our Python and React libraries, which you can use with your credentials to get started today.
Vital Link Flow
1. Once you have your user_key you can use this to generate a link token on your backend.
Unique key to generated in the last step, that is specific to a user.
