Generating API keys
Create API keys and build integrations with the apps you already use for your business operations.
An API key is an authentication method that allows access to Inperium data through our public API. Let’s say, the users log in with an email and password. Add-ons and integrations use API keys to authenticate. Typically, an API key looks like a long password phrase. Just like users, each API keys have permissions associated with them. API keys have expiration dates and cannot be used once they expire.
Software engineers leverage these keys when creating API integrations with third-party products. For example, with a help of API, they can automatically send data from your marketing website to Inperium.
- In Inperium Account, navigate to Account settings and then API keys.
- Select Add API key.
Specify its name.
- Copy the secret and share it with your development team.
You can’t modify the key or see the key phrase. If you need to update the key, delete it and create a new one.
When you delete a key or once it expires, the add-ons and integrations leveraging this key will no longer be able to access Inperium through Inperium API.
