Check the documentation at:

There is instructions on how to sign the api requests.

Alternatively you can use a python or ruby client that does that for you:
for example: github.com/jasonhancock/cloudstack-python-client

Also, you may want to consider registering to the apache users mailing list:
see: incubator.apache.org/cloudstack/mailing-lists.html
