API AuthenticationΒΆ

SpectX can generate API keys for any user by clicking on the Managing - Users and Groups, creating a user and then clicking the Generate API Key button. SpectX recommends that processes requiring an API key be added as separate users, not given the API key of a natural person or other machine user, this will create a cleaner audit trail of user activity.

SpectX API implements a separate authentication mechanism based on shared secrets. Each SpectX user can be assigned to API Access Key, which must be passed from API client to SpectX in HTTP header api_access_key. details on how to configure and troubleshoot the API can be found here.
