Client credentials

Client credentials are required to use the Communicate API. When you create credentials for the user who is logged in, you specify a name for the credentials, and Communicate then generates the following:

  • Customer ID - the ID that is assigned to the creator account
  • Client ID - the ID for client credentials
  • Secret - the Secret token for client credentials
Note: You can have more than one set of client credentials for each team.

To enter client credentials, click your name at the top right, and then the cogwheel symbol .

The Account Settings screen is displayed.

To add client credentials: select Client Credentials, select the appropriate team, and then click Add Credentials. Enter a name for the new set of credentials. Communicate will then create a set of credentials for the logged in user consisting of Customer ID, Client ID and Secret token as described above. Keep a record of the credentials for when you want to use the Communicate API.

To regenerate the Secret token for a set of credentials: click the symbol and eneter the word DELETE (in upper case) where prompted.

To delete a set of client credentials: click the symbol and enter the word DELETE (in upper case) where prompted.
