Quick Start
A quick start guide to the upcoach API
In this quick start guide, we will be using the upcoach API to create a new client and add it to a program.

Get Your API Token

Your API requests are authenticated using API tokens. Any request that doesn't include an API token will return an error.
Read the Authentication section to learn how to create tokens and start using them.

Add a Client

Send an authenticated request to the client endpoint to create a new client, which we will be using in the next step.
POST https://api.upcoach.com/clients
Content-Type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer <your api token>
​
{
"name": "Ryan Reynolds",
"email": "[email protected]"
}
Once you have successfully added a client, grab the id from the returned client resource object. We will be using it in the next step.
Don't forget to replace the <your api token> placeholder with your own API token
You can learn more about how to use the client endpoint to add a new client to the organization in the resources section.

Add Client to a Program

With the new client added, we will use the new client id in the following request to add it to a program.
POST https://api.upcoach.com/programs/<program id>/members
Content-Type: application/json
Authorization: Bearer <your api token>
​
{
"user": "<client id>",
}
Don't forget to replace the <program id> and <client id> placeholders with your program and client ids
