Hint: Equinix Metal's API can be reached at

Most of the endpoints in the API require authentication. Authenticatingis done with an authentication token in the X-Auth-Token header.

curl -H 'X-Auth-Token: my_authentication_token'

Authentication tokens are used to identify the user your application isconnecting to the API on behalf of. Think of authentication tokens aspermanent sessions—the user creates authentication tokens, and your appcan use them to connect to the API on their behalf until they delete thetoken.

Users can create authentication tokens in the Equinix Metal Portal.
