What are API Credentials?


API is a way for people to programmatically make calls to MemberMouse. Creating multiple API credentials is a secure way for you to give access to the other people you work with. The default access is for you, and as you may need to give other people access, you will want to create a separate API credentials. This way when a partnership ends you may delete the API credentials, thus deleting access, at any time.


Managing API Credentials


In the MemberMouse menu go to Developer Tools and then click on the API Credentials tab.

The screen shot below is an example of what the API Credentials tab will look like. Here you will see the default API credentials and any other API credentials you have created and attributes, including:  key code, password, status and status. This page is where you will create and delete API credentials as well as edit existing ones. Consult the API Credentials' Options table below to learn more.
