API Key Management¶
Multiple API Keys¶
For accounts on Business or Enterprise plans, multiple API keys may be created, each with a unique name.
Having multiple API keys enables:
- restricted access control
- usage monitoring
- separate API Keys for different testing environments
To create an API key, go to API Keys and Users from the Dashboard. Enter a name for the API Key and select Generate new API key. API Keys may only be viewed once and are not retrievable by the system. API Keys should be treated with the same security considerations as a password.
Sub-Account User accounts may access a subset of Mailsac functionality - almost everything except managing the account, billing, and API keys or user logins. This feature is available on Business and Enterprise Plans.
A Sub-Account User’s password serves both as the password to the Mailsac.com website and the REST API
Create User Login¶
The password for the user login is automatically created. It can only be viewed once. The credential can be downloaded as a CSV file.
When logged into the website using an user login, the user session is restricted from:
- viewing and modifying payment information
- adding or removing API keys
- managing account features
- adding or removing custom domains
Login Using an Sub-Account User¶
Use the Sub-Account User Login to sign into Mailsac to login user a Sub-Account User
- Primary Account ID: The primary account name used to sign up for Mailsac
- User Name: The name of the user login
- Password: The password for the user
