API credentials are unique identifiers linked to your account, permitting API requests to be processed while controlling access. The API keys, Public and Private, authenticate the application accessing the API without referencing an actual user. The difference between the API credentials and API authentication is that the latter identifies the user as well.
API credentials can be viewed and updated from the Profile Menu. Go to the top corner of the dashboard’s left-hand side. Click on your name to expand the list of options.
To locate, revoke or pause your API Secret and Public Keys:
- Go to Profile menu > My Company > API & Settings.
- To revoke and issue new API keys, select Reset underneath each Key.
- To temporarily disable the API keys, select Pause underneath each Key.
