API Key Management

It is recommended that for each application that uses the Sinch Authentication 365 API, you should create a separate API Key.

These API Keys are used to authenticate your application with the Sinch Authentication 365 cloud service.

app_keys_1

To create an API Key, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Create API Key button
  2. Enter a name for the Key

    app_keys_2

  3. Click Create

At This point you will be provided with a Secret Key and an API Key Code.

The Secret Key will be shown only once, so you have to save that somewhere safe for your records.  Write it down or “copy and paste” it somewhere to be used in your application implementation. 

This will be your client ID and secret for the _getAccessTokenClientCredential_s API.

(Don’t worry; if you lose your API Key code (e.g. secret) you can generate a new secret for that API Key)

app_keys_3

You will be able to see the list of the Created API Keys on the main Screen.

On this screen you may select an API Key, Delete, or Refresh the secret.

app_keys_4

You may create multiple keys per account. For example, you might wish to create separate keys/secrets for different use-cases. Additionally, it is a better security practice to create separate keys/secrets from your login/password for this Administrative Dashboard.
