Hi All,

I was looking into new Crunchbase API (V3). I created a new API key and tried several API endpoints. I was not able to get Organization details
from the API endpoint: /organizations/:permalink

My API call: https:/​/​api.crunchbase.com/​v/​3/​organizations/​bettingrunner?user_key=<API KEY>

I got 401 Unauthorized on making this request. The same key worked well for other end points like: /locations and /organizations.

However only the
/organizations/:permalink endpoint gave 401 error.

Please correct me if I am doing something wrong in API call

   The permalink endpoint(s) are only available to approved licensees of the API.

   You can read more about the terms of use on the CrunchBase Data Hub under "Accessing the Dataset"

Hi Kurt, what's the process to request non-commercial license approval for the API REST?

We've got granted access to the ODM, but no key for the API. Is the same form we need to fill?

Our Licensing group (cc:ed) can help you out.

Hi Kurt,

I have the same problem: I can only retrieve information about organizations, locations, and persons via the API, but not products, acquisitions etc. (API Unauthorized)

Can your licensing group help me out by approving my license?

   Access to the complete REST API requires a Commercial License, approved Academic or NonCommercial use or membership in the CrunchBase Venture Program.
