SUSHI Credentials: How to Find Them

Where to find your SUSHI credentials (SUSHI service server end point URL, Requestor ID, Customer ID) for various database platforms.

ABOUT SUSHI CREDENTIALS

SUSHI is a NISO standard that allows the automated retrieval of COUNTER usage reports into local systems. 

To set up a SUSHI harvester to retrieve COUNTER compliant database usage statistics, you will need to enter:

  • SUSHI server service endpoint URL (i.e. SUSHI URL)
  • Customer ID (i.e. SUSHI username)
  • Requestor ID (i.e. SUSHI password) or API Key

Instructions on where to find this information for each vendor database platform are below, and indexed on the left.  Some of these instructions apply only to Ontario colleges.

A partial list of SUSHI URLs and other useful information can be found at this NISO site:

For Alma migrations, a list of SUSHI vendors is here:
