API Documentation - ISP proxy network

Our API documentation below describes how to use Bright Data's API commands and optional flags used for automating and controlling single or recurrent actions executed in regard to your ISP proxy zone.

Bright Data's API supports various programming languages, such as shell, Node.js, Java, C#, VB, PHP, Python, Ruby, Perl, etc.

Authentication methods

When you send a request, using your Mobile proxy you'll need to use your zone credentials as an authentication method (<CUSTOMER_ID> and <ZONE_PASSWORD>).

When you send an account management request, you'll need to use an API token as your authentication method.

ISP proxy request syntax

The simplest GET request with an ISP Proxy

curl--proxy brd.superproxy.io:22225 --proxy-user brd-customer-<CUSTOMER_ID>-zone-<ZONE_NAME>:<ZONE_PASSWORD> "http://target.site"

The expected output for this request should look like the following:

{"ip":"ALLOCATED_IP","country":"PK","asn":{"asnum":203020,"org_name":"HostRoyale Technologies Pvt Ltd"},"geo":{"city":"Islamabad","region":"IS","region_name":"Islamabad","postal_code":
