ThingLink API

Last updated by Rachel Cohen on May 18, 2017 17:27

Access the ThingLink API and documentation here at Apiary


If you just want to have a really simple way to embed Thinglink images, use our OEmbed API. We support OEmbed discovery, which means that every page which is embeddable, you can look for the <link rel="alternate" type="application/json+oembed"> element.

For example, page at


defines it's OEmbed endpoint as

   <link rel="alternate" type="application/json+oembed"
          title="Thinglink Scene oEmbed" />


For external authentication, we also support SAML 2.0. In order to enable SAML, please contact support@thinglink.com. We will need the following from you:

  • The SAML certificate
  • Your SSO URL
