Accessing the API Key Generator

Generating an API Key

Generating an API Key requires two pieces of data a User and that users password. When an api call is made that user's preferences will be used when retrieving data from the system. Relevant preferences to consider are timzone, language, and location. If the api is used to save a field value then the user associated with the key will be used for auditing purposes if that option is selected for the field being saved. The user selected will also be used in queries that start from the currently logged in user. Sometimes it is recommended to create a API user for your application that has static well known preferences.
