iLab API

Agilent has an application programming interface (API) which enables customers to seamlessly integrate outside applications with iLab’s billing and reporting modules. 

An application program interface (API) is a set of routines, protocols, and tools for building software applications. In short, an API specifies how software components should interact. 



To get started with the iLab API, you will need:

  • A client ID: a public identifier for apps.
  • An API token: a unique identifier of an application requesting access to your service.

Client ID and API token

Follow these steps to obtain your first sets of client ID and tokens:

  1. Log into your account and go to the Core page
  2. Click on Administration tab > API Clients panel
  3. Enter a name and click on Add New button
  4. Click on ‘green arrow’ icon
  5. Check all options and click on Grant Token button
  6. Reload the Administration tab and click on API Clients panel
  7. Click on ‘1 Token’ link
  8. Click on the date field to edit the expiration date, and select a date, ideally 5 years from now
