Instacart FoodStorm APIs are RESTful. They use predictable, resource-oriented URLs and HTTP response codes. The APIs use built-in HTTP features, such as HTTP authentication and HTTP verbs, which are understood by HTTP clients.
When you sign up for Instacart FoodStorm, you are assigned two servers: one for user acceptance testing and one for production. You can verify the status of the servers on the status page. You need to sign in to view this page.
Before making API requests, authenticate with the platform to generate an access token. You need your FoodStorm client ID and client secret and your assigned server. For more information, see Generate an access token.
