How to generate API credentials

This article explains how to generate API credentials.

API access is currently not supported. If you are interested in a custom API integration, please let us know which system you want to connect to. This way we can follow up with you if there is a status update.

The API credentials are tied to a user account in when creating the credentials. We recommend to create a specific user to be used for the API integration exclusively.

  6. The API Credentials have been generated. 

    💡 Your API Credentials consist of two pieces: API key and API secret. The API key will function as the username when you authenticate to the Cropster API, and the API secret is your password.

  7. Save your API secret securely and treat it like a password. 

Your API secret will only be shown once, and there is no way to recover it.
