Crunch allows you to use API keys, which provides enhanced security protection to your account. The following provides a brief description of how API keys work and how you can use the Crunch UI to manage them.
How API Keys work
API keys are a code used to securely identify and authenticate an application or user in Crunch. With an API key, you have the ability to give SSO users a key that allows them to access the Crunch API without having to issue a password. You are then able to store the API key as an environment variable within your application.
API keys in Crunch are only valid using the subdomain associated with the user’s account. See the following for more information.
