With the HCP metadata query API, each request you make must specify a URL that represents an HCP tenant, the default tenant, or all tenants to which system-level users have access. Each request must also include the credentials for the user account you’re using to access namespaces through the metadata query API. Your user account determines which namespaces you can access.

This chapter describes request URLs and explains how to include account credentials in a metadata query API request.

The examples in this book use cURL and Python with PycURL, a Python interface that uses the libcurl library. cURL and PycURL are both freely available open-source software. You can download them from http://curl.haxx.se.
