Before you get started.
We'd like to let you know three important principles.
Before you can take advantage of our API endpoints, you will need to sign up for a Maplestory Network account. Once you do, you'll be given the option to create a new app which will generate an app key. This will be used to authenticate most requests you make using our service.
Once you have your app key handy, you can head over to our developer documentation to explore.
To ensure the stability of our service and protect our infrastructure, we may revoke access if you exhibit any of the following:
- Intentionally scraping our APIs to host the data it responds with elsewhere.
- Excessively requesting for IO intensive endpoints such as our spritesheet generation.
- Not properly implementing code to determine if an API call was unsuccessful and continuing to repeatedly request it.
While we do not enforce how many times specific endpoints can be accessed within a given time period, limits or otherwise a temporary block may occur to minimize abuse and maintain stability.
