How to access the Cortado MDM API

You have full access to all Cortado MDM functions via our administration portal. If required, we also offer you to control some of these functions via our Cortado MDM API (BETA).

Note! A Pro Plan is required to use this API.


In this How To article, we will show you how to access the Cortado MDM API.


To authenticate against the API, you need an API key. You can generate this API key for each administrator in the  administrator management.

  • Open the Cortado administration portal and then select an administrator under Administration→ Administrators (left arrow in illus.) (or add a new administrator).
  • Then select Edit (right arrow in illus.).

select Administrator and click on Edit

  • Now check the Access with API key checkbox (right arrow in illus.) and then click Generate (left arrow in illus.).

To learn how to access the Cortado MDM API using the API key, see our Cortado MDM API documentation.

Note! If the same administrator has several organizations, you need the ID of your organization (mtcid). This is the only way to assign the requests to the correct organization. You can find this ID in the Cortado administration portal under Administration→ Settings→ General (arrow in illus.).
