API and upgrade to 2019.3

Hi,  I have just started the upgrades in our office to 2019.3 and I have been asked if I want to load an API.  I don't know what this is or what it is for.  Do I need it?  Is it essential for the correct operation of 2019.3 or does it just allow for add-ons?  It has loaded on the first computer and is now asking me if I want to generate a certificate or use my own.  I don't know what this means either.  


Please can someone help me as I am in between upgrades and not sure which choice to make.

Hi @nicole7247 


The AccountRight API allows for third party programs to connect to AccountRight. Once connected then it depends on the program, but they can add information into the file, update and export information out of your file.


Generally speaking, whether or not the API is installed will make no difference to the functionality of AccountRight, however if you have any third party programs that use the AccountRight API he functionality of these programs may be impacted
