Testing Your Account
eAdventist authenticates POST requests for web services by checking for your credentials (i.e. email & password) in the "Authorization" HTTP header. cURL makes it easy to test your web service account from the command line. Use the "-H" flag to include the header.
For example, to request congregations that have changed since April 1, 2014 in XML format, use this command:
curl -H "Authorization: your-email:your-password" "https://www.eadventist.net/web_services/congregations?from=4/1/2014;format=xml"
