Is there a simple way to use a cURL request to the REST API to access a file on my Sharepoint account? For example

curl -i -H "Authorization: Bearer <some-key-here>" https://mysharepoint.com/_api/web/Lists

I have read all the documentation about authentication and authorization for apps, but in this case I don't have an "application" that I can register. I simply need an API key of some kind to use in REST requests. How can I use the REST API in this way?


The first you have to get auth cookies. The auth process you can see at the figure enter image description here

I don't think exists ready to use solution for this, but the following links may be useful for you:

  • Thanks for the explanation. Unfortunately those links both use PHP, which will not work for me. Do you know if there are any solutions like that in Java? – KJ50 Feb 12 '15 at 0:29
  • There is really not so much, but I think you can start from this gist.github.com/mirontoli/3702971 – Roman Feb 13 '15 at 15:45
