The Google Sheet and XBRL US API Access add-on were created so anyone with a Google Account can run basic queries and return data via the XBRL API from the XBRL US Public Database of Filings. A Google Account is not needed if you’re using the XBRL API for queries through another resource (Insomnia or another application interface).
We’ve integrated Google’s login with the XBRL US Web site, so you can use either authentication platform when the XBRL US login prompt appears. If you’re using the same email address on both platforms, you’ll be able to post on these forums, authenticate to use the API, etc.
If you don’t have a Google Account, you can create one using your current email (without creating an @gmail.com account) – use the link at right to get started.

Using the XBRL API with the Public Filings Database
Unless otherwise agreed to in writing, any and all use of the XBRL API to authenticate and retrieve data from the XBRL US Database of Public Filings implies user consent and agreement with the XBRL US API Agreement. If you are unable to agree to these terms, do not use the XBRL API.
Ready to work with the API in Excel's Power Query, or with your own system or app?
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your existing XBRL US Web account provisioned to generate client ID/Secret pairs to work with the XBRL API in a REST client or other application, including Excel's Power Query.
NOTE: You do not need to generate client ID/Secret pairs if you use the Google Add-on and Google Sheet exclusively to access data - the XBRL API Authentication Add-on handles this automatically.
Your account needs to be provisioned before you can login and generate client ID/secret pairs.
