Manage security codes

Security codes are used by an external program to access your domain's AODocs data using the AODocs Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). Security codes provide access as a specific user or as a super administrator.

Important: Only AODocs super administrators can create security codes.

Generate a security code

By default, security codes are available for 24 hours. After this period, security codes can't be used and are no longer listed in the table.

Note: You can edit the expiration date of your security code to make it available for more than 24 hours.

1. Press the + button.

2. Select the access level of your new security code:

  • Super administrator: this allows operations with the security code by super administrators.
  • Same as user: this allows operations with the security code by the specified user. If you choose a super administrator email address here, the security code will be active but its scope will be limited.
