About

This Utility API lets you dynamically find the user agent information based on the user agent string passed.
Detecting user agents in applications is vital because it enables the optimization of user experience based on the device being used. The user agent finder dynamically identifies the user agent string passed, which can be a challenging task due to the numerous combinations of user agents, especially when done dynamically. By leveraging the user agent information, applications can tailor their content to provide the best possible experience and performance for users. This means that the application can adjust its layout, design, and functionality to suit the specific device accessing it, resulting in a more user-friendly and engaging experience. In short, detecting user agents is crucial for applications to deliver personalized and optimized experiences that increase user satisfaction and loyalty.

Authentication

All API requests to ApyHub services need to be authenticated. Currently we support tokens or basic authentication mechanisms. You can generate and view your existing credentials from your workspace settings (on the left side of the navbar) and go to “API Keys".
Points to note:
  • Credential secrets are generated on the fly and are not stored in plain text, so on generating a credential please save the secrets somewhere safe.
  • Use the apy-token as the header parameter to pass the token.
  • Use the Authorization header to send the basic authentication credentials.
