Start Using Intrinio

Once you have created your account, to get started, first navigate to your account page below to find your subscription:

https://account.intrinio.com/account/subscriptions

Click the “Details” link to the right of your subscription name, then the “Product Page” link in the window that pops up.

This will take you to the Product Page for your subscription, providing detailed information on the datasets included, documentation, and other helpful metadata. We recommend reading the overview on this main product page, then clicking the “Documentation” link on the right-hand side when ready to dive in.

At the top of this documentation page, you'll see several access methods to toggle between: Excel, CSV, and API.

  • Excel provides specific documentation for our Excel add-in
  • CSV provides specific documentation for our Web API to CSV functionality
  • API provides specific documentation for our Web API

Note: The rest of this tutorial will use examples/walkthrough our Web API specifically. However, this will be almost identical to all other access methods, with slight variations in install and functionality, so it will be applicable no matter which method you choose.

Begin at the top left of the documentation and work your way down to initially familiarize yourself with our API and general limits. Once done, begin making your way down the endpoints listed under the “API Endpoints” section – you’ll have access to everything there using your production API key. Do not use your sandbox API key, as that provides general, free limited access to our platform. Your production API key is tied to your university subscription.

By default, the endpoint documentation will be for our Web API. If you’d prefer to utilize our SDKs in one of our supported languages, use the box at the top right of the documentation to toggle between the various languages we support, which will automatically update the endpoint documentation.

Each endpoint specific documentation includes all parameters available, all return fields, sample data, and a live data explorer at the bottom to create and test your requests. Below are some examples to initially help you get started:
