Step 2: Obtain your Credentials

To build against the SISS REST API's, or to make calls via a tool like Postman, you need an Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key, a Client ID and a Client Secret.

Your Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key is obtained by Subscribing to a Product.   

  • The Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key is a used to identify you to the API for the subscription you have chosen.

  • The Client ID and Client Secret are required for generating your Authorisation to use the API, and are essential to protecting yourself and your customers.

Keep these pieces of information in a very safe place.

Subscribing to a Product
