Registering a New Application¶
To integrate with the cTrader Open API you will first need to register an application. You will be required to use the application credentials for accessing the API.
Creating a New Application¶
To create a new API application, perform the following actions.
1. Open the cTrader Open API portal.
2. Log in using your cTrader ID.
3. After logging in, open the 'Applications' page.
4. Click on the 'Add New App' button.
5. Fill out the application form.
To ensure your application gets approved as quickly as possible, please provide its detailed description.
6. Click on 'Save'.
Afterward, the newly created application will appear in the applications list. Its status will be set to 'Submitted'
After the application is reviewed by Spotware, you will be contacted via email. The message will either confirm the application approval or request further details about your application.
Adding Redirect URIs¶
Once your application is approved by Spotware, you can start integrating with the cTrader Open API.
The next step is to add a redirect URI that will be used for account authentication.
Note that you can always change the redirect URIs assigned to your application, remove them entirely, or add new ones.
The Default Redirect URI
The default redirect URI is only for the playground environment. As it does not work outside the playground environment, you cannot use in in your code.
