API Access Keys

Token generation for Dynamic Calls

Cloras supports dynamic calls from various systems to synchronize data on the go. (Read about Dynamic Pipes here.)

The URL that is copied from the Dynamic Pipe is called from a system in order to read or write data. This URL is in turn made up of API calls (written inside Flows), which communicate with the respective systems to fetch data.

For additional security purposes, Cloras also sets authentication in place. One of two methods can be used for authentication:

Users can use one of the following authentication methods while making API calls

  • Token Authentication: The dynamic token generated with an expiry time by Cloras

  • Basic Authentication: A user-name, password combination

Token Authentication

A dynamic token generated from the user account, to be shared with the other systems. Click on Generate Keys from the Account Menu. The Create New Token page opens.

Create New Token

Provide the following information to create a new account.

Field Name

Description

Token Name

Any name for the user to identify later

Days

Days of Expiry. The token will be expired after specified days.

Password

Your Account Password

Once generated, the user can copy and enter the token while triggering a Dynamic Call from various systems.

This token is given as part of the header information in the following format:

Bearer {token}

Setting days to 0 (zero), will set the token expiry to unlimited.

Basic Authentication

Cloras also supports basic authentication for accessing the API. The caller has to provide the account username and password in the request header.
