API key VS. user login API (Archived)

Qordoba authenticates API requests using one of two ways: an API key or login credentials.

The main distinction between these two is:

API key: allows multiple users across the organization to access the Qordoba API functionality. Your account’s secret API key can be used to perform any API request without restriction. Read more about how to generate an API key here.

User login: individual users have a username and password to login to the platform. When using these credentials, Qordoba creates a unique authorization token for the user to interact with the API.
