Re: API Key for Desktop AccountRight

Just my 2 cents...

I've never had to use the API key when using the API on the local network.

It is required when accessing an online (cloud) data file though.

Hi @Paul_ONeill

 

Yes to access the API, you will need an API key.

 

Thanks

Re: API Key for Desktop AccountRight

Sorry - that didn't quite answer my question: do I need an API key?

Or will the libraries realise I'm working locally and skip that requirement?

TIA

Paul

Hi @Paul_ONeill,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us. If your app is a desktop app then you could use something like 

http://desktop

or 

http://localhost:xxxx ( xxxx is the port number that you use for the API)

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us at developers@myob.com

 

Thanks

API Key for Desktop AccountRight

Hi

 

 

I tried to register fmy app for API access but it requires a Redirect Uri. This sounds like a web-based app.

 

Since I am writing a desktop-only app, do I require an API key or do I just login using Base-64 encrypted header credentials?

 

Many thanks

Paul
