The Zercurity API

Postman

Postman is a fantastic web and desktop app for building and consuming APIs. To consume the Zercurity API, first create a new workspace.

Generating our Zercurity API token

In order to authenticate with the Zercurity API. You’ll need an API Access Id and Access Key. From within Zercurity, go to Settings and the API keys. From here create a new API key and give it a name. We’re using Postman. Once you hit create you’ll receive your new API keys.

Important

Keep these API keys safe. Once the dialogue box disappears, the API keys cannot be retrieved. To limit and/or grant access to a given API you’ll need to define a new or use an existing IAM policy template.
