There are important distinctions between Target Admin APIs (including the Recommendations APIs) and Target Delivery APIs:
Admin APIs let you configure various aspects of Target that you could also configure in the Target UI. Admin APIs require authentication.
Delivery APIs let you retrieve content. Delivery APIs do not require authentication.
To use Target Admin APIs, you first need to configure authentication using Adobe I/O. For more information, see Configure Authentication in Adobe Target Tutorials.
