API Access Keys

Token generation for Dynamic Calls

DCKAP Integrator supports dynamic calls from various systems to synchronize data on the go. (Read about Dynamic Pipes here.)

The URL that is copied from the Dynamic Pipe is called from a system in order to read or write data. This URL is in turn made up of API calls (written inside Flows), which communicate with the respective systems to fetch data.

For additional security purposes, DCKAP Integrator also sets authentication in place. One of two methods can be used for authentication:

Users can use one of the following authentication methods while making API calls

  • Token Authentication: The dynamic token generated with an expiry time by DCKAP Integrator

  • Basic Authentication: A user-name, password combination

Token Authentication

A dynamic token generated from the user account, to be shared with the other systems. Click on the user icon in the top right section and click on Account Settings. Under "API Keys", users can manage the below options. The Create New Token page opens.

Create New Token

Provide the following information to create a new account.

  • Once generated, the user can copy and enter the token while triggering a Dynamic Call from various systems.

  • Users can now generate Access Tokens of smaller size (64 characters) in the API Keys Module.

  • Dynamic Calls: During dynamic calls, it is possible to authorize DCKAP Integrator by using access_token, jwt_token in headers/params.

Examples:

http://0.0.0.0:2020/v1/dynamic/listener/<id>?access_token=<token>

http://0.0.0.0:2020/v1/dynamic/listener/<id>?token=<jwt_token>

  • This token is given as part of the header information in the following format:

Key		     Value
Authorization	     Bearer {token}   
                     access_token {token}

Setting days to 0 (zero), will set the token expiry to unlimited.

Basic Authentication

DCKAP Integrator also supports basic authentication for accessing the API. The caller has to provide the account username and password in the request header.
