Add the Environment

Fill in the variable baseUrl as shown below:

Manage the Environment

The variable baseUrl should be set as https://{{token}}@{{username}}.pryv.me, with the variables username and token corresponding to the username and access token of your Pryv account. You can find more information on how to create a Pryv user on the dedicated page, and obtain an Access Token from the Pryv Access Token Generator.

In our example, the username "testuser" associated to the token "cdtasdjhashdsa" are used to set the baseUrl variable as https://cdtasdjhashdsa@testuser.pryv.me.
