# Authentication

Fairwinds Insights provides a REST API, so you can interact with your Insights data programmatically.

Authentication tokens are scoped to a particular organization. Using an organization's access token, you can create new clusters, view report data, export Action Items, and more.

To find your authentication token, go to your cluster's settings page, and click "Show token":

Your token can be used as a Bearer token in the Authorization header of an HTTP request. For example, using cURL:

curl https://insights.fairwinds.com/v0/organizations/acme-co \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer $YOUR_TOKEN"
