Generating a Key and Secret
A Key and Secret will need to be generated and given to Otus so we can read data from the API Server. A Key and Secret is synonymous with a username and password.
Step 1: Set Up
Browse to Product Setup →
Skyward Contact Access →
Secured User →
Click Add →
Click the Organization button →
Enter Organization (Vendor) Name →
Click Add Entered name to Secure Users →
Enter Address Info and Save (optional) →
Enter Demographic Info and Continue (optional) →
Enter Security Info desired and Save →
Note: The user must remain active, other settings can remain at the default.
Step 2: Generate
Highlight the New Organization User in the Secured User list →
Click the API button in the lower right corner of the screen →
Click Generate New key →
Note: If the API button is not available please make sure you are running the June 2016 Release + Addendum 10 or later.
Step 3: Share
Copy and Paste the Key and Secret into a document. (Do not screenshot.)
Upload this document to ShareFile.
Contact your Otus technology coach to let them know that you have uploaded the credentials document to ShareFile.
Your technology coach will then contact you with next steps.
You have just successfully generated and shared your Skyward credentials!
