Learn how to perform authentication to access our APIs.

The StraitsX API allows generation and viewing of API key information through secured endpoints.

🚧

Securing your API Keys

Your API keys carry many privileges, so be sure to keep them secure! Do not share your secret API keys in publicly accessible areas such as GitHub, client-side code, and so forth.

Selecting the right app API key

A SG customer profile can only be created using the XSGD dashboard's APP API Key.
Likewise, an ID customer profile can only be created using the XIDR dashboard's APP API Key.

The app key is used to authenticate your business account.
Note that this key can be used to retrieve details specific to your account in some API endpoints.
