This article explains how to authenticate using your Splio universe API key.
- We recommend to use an API key per connexion point (each store, e-commerce, POS)
- Do not authenticate for each API call you are making
- An authentication token will last 1 hour so we recommend an authentication every 50 minutes (note that the token format is a jwt format)
- Never communicate your API key (even to our Customer Care team), the last 3 characters will suffice if we know the name of the universe).
Obtaining the API key in your Splio universe admin
Step 1 - click on your profile
