The action item "Create API key" is used to create an API key for authenticating the cloud communication
- of the RetailForce (Fiscal) client, as well as
- for using the cloud API.
After pressing the button, a pop-up window appears containing
- the API key and
- the API secret.
Both values can be copied to the clipboard individually using the buttons:
The respective API key is listed as a user under "User assignments".
A key pair can be used for the entity for which it was generated and for all subordinate entities. It can be used by any number of remote systems (middleware clients) to establish the cloud connection. In principle, any number of key pairs can be created, but we recommend deleting unused key pairs (in "User assignments").
