Feature: Authentication Keys
Authentication Keys (authkeys) are used by applications and script to remotely access the Yombo Gataway API without requiring them to have the login credentials. Authkeys can be created by users or modules.
If a script, program, other other tool wants to access the Yombo Gateway API, an authkey can be used in place of the login credentials. This helps keep the account more secure by not having authentication credentials in various places. When needed, authkeys can be revoked or disabled.
For every application or script that needs access, it's best to create a new authentication key for each one. This allows you to revoke access to a single application or replace the authkey if that application or script has been compromised.
Creating Authentication Keys
Authkeys can be created by users or modules. For creating authkeys inside modules, see Library: Authentication Keys.
To create a new authkey see Web Interface: Authentication Keys.
- To view and manage authkeys, see Authentication Keys @ Web Interface
- For use inside a module, see: Authentication Keys @ Library Documentation
