Client Credentials

The Client Credentials grant type is ideal for access to public data and self-management of your Under Armour API key. This grant type allows consumers to make requests on their own behalf, not that of a user; it therefore does not require user authorization. Some use cases include:

  • Finding public routes
  • Exploring public workouts
  • Retrieving ActivityTypes

Technical Description

For this grant type the POST request to the access token endpoint ( should have the following parameters:

Param Value
grant_type client_credentials
client_id Client Application’s client ID
client_secret Client Application’s client secret


  • Unlike most of our API, requests to the access token endpoint are required by the specifications to have a content type of application/x-www-form-urlencoded.
  • The legacy endpoint URL is interchangeable.
