What are API Credentials?

By providing a client_id and a client_secret to an authorization end-point, you will obtain an access token.

You will then be able to access the Automation API by using this token as a Bearer Token present in a Authorization HTTP request header.

It is linked to a user account and can be used for all integrations that offer this authentication system.

Enable API Credentials

To access enable the API Credentials, you must be connected to your Kameleoon App. Once connected, click on your avatar/initials in the upper right corner and go to “My profile”.

Your API Credentials are under your name and email address.

You can copy your Client-ID and/or Client-Secret using the copy function at the end of the line.

To generate a new Client-Secret key, simply click at the bottom of the popin.

You will need your Client-Secret when integrating with other tools. This authentication enables access to data related to websites that you have configured in the “Website authorizations” section.

Enter the Client-Secret key in ContentSquare

At the moment, only Contentsquare uses this authentication system.

  • On the Contentsquare Dashboard, go to the settings menu.
  • Select the “Integrations” section.
  • In Integrations, select Kameleoon.
  • Then enter your Client-ID and Client-Secret.
