Generate an API key

You must generate an API key and secret to create and manage applications, connectors, and identity providers with API calls. Generating this key is also necessary when integrating some third party-products with EAA, such as a security information and event management (SIEM) product.

How to

  1. Log in to the EAA Management Portal.
  2. From the top menu bar click System > Settings.
  3. In the API section of the page, click Generate New API Key.
  4. In the Generate New API Key dialog, enter a name and description in the provided fields.
  5. Click Generate Key.
    A dialog with the API key and secret appears. Copy and paste the key and secret to a secure location.
  6. Click Done.
