How to Connect to Aptos

It’s easy to connect to your Aptos infrastructure via REST.

If you haven’t already configured any Aptos infrastructure, visit the Aptos marketplace page to learn more about Blockdaemon’s Aptos options.

Once you have purchased your Blockdaemon Aptos infrastructure, your Blockdaemon Technical Account Manager (TAM) will send you the necessary access credentials. There are multiple ways to use these to connect to your node/cluster.

In this guide, we will cover the following simple methods of connection to your infrastructure:


Aptos REST Connection via cURL (Bearer)

Step 1 – Your TAM will send you the following access credentials:

  • Your Unique Endpoint URL
  • Your Unique Auth Token

Please Note: These are one-time view, so make sure to copy them.

Step 2 – Add your access credentials to a cURL request.

curl --request GET \
  --url https://YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL/v1/blocks/by_height/HEIGHT_HERE \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --header 'Authorization: Bearer YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN' 
  • Replace YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL with the Endpoint URL sent by your Blockdaemon TAM
  • Replace YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN with the Auth Token sent by your Blockdaemon TAM
  • Replace HEIGHT_HERE with your chosen block height

Aptos REST Connection via cURL (X-Auth-Token)

Step 1 – Your TAM will send you the following access credentials:

  • Your Unique Endpoint URL
  • Your Unique Auth Token

Please Note: These are one-time view, so make sure to copy them.

Step 2 – Add your access credentials to a cURL request.

curl --request GET \
  --url https://YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL/v1/blocks/by_height/HEIGHT_HERE \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --header 'X-Auth-Token: YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN' 
  • Replace YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL with the Endpoint URL sent by your Blockdaemon TAM
  • Replace YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN with the Auth Token sent by your Blockdaemon TAM
  • Replace HEIGHT_HERE with your chosen block height

Aptos REST Connection via cURL (auth URI)

Step 1 – Your TAM will send you the following access credentials:

curl --request GET \
  --url https://YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL/v1/blocks/by_height/HEIGHT_HERE?auth=YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN \
  --header 'Content-Type: application/json'
