How to Connect to Flare

It’s easy to connect to your Flare infrastructure via RPC.

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

Once you have purchased your Blockdaemon Flare infrastructure, your Blockdaemon Technical Account Manager (TAM) will send you the necessary access credentials.

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

In this guide, you’ll learn following simple methods of connection to your infrastructure:


Flare Connection via cURL

curl -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
-X POST 'YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL/ext/bc/C/?auth=YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN' \
--data-raw '{"method":"YOUR_RPC_METHOD","id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0"}'
  • 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.
