Create and Manage API Keys

 

API keys are necessary to invoke OAuth for user authentication. API keys and credentials can easily be found in Rev admin by following these steps:

  1. Log in to Rev with an Account Admin user account
  2. Navigate to admin (gear icon in the top right corner)
  3. Click on System Settings > API Keys
  4. Click on Add Key and enter the following fields
    1. Name = user friendly name, only used in Rev admin
    2. Key = API Key (will be referenced elsewhere, choose something secure)
    3. Redirect URI = Web address that your app will redirect users to after a successful authentication. This will accept multiple redirect URI’s that are separated by a new line in the form field.
  5. Click Save

 

Once saved, Rev will also generate a Secret to be associated with this API key. These fields will be referenced in the OAuth workflow for authentication.
