API and merchant key administration

  • Merchants can generate and revoke API keys using Ecster Dashboard. To determine what an API key is allowed to do a permission based system is used. API key permissions are derived by the user creating the API key, i.e. the api key has the same permissions as the creating user
  • Merchants can view associated merchant keys using the Ecster Dashboard
  • Multiple keys with same profile can be created and be valid concurrently
