Onboarding - API Credentials

Overview

One of the first steps Modern Retail takes for Tri-Tech projects is to retrieve your API credentials from Tri-Tech. This article will briefly go over what that looks like, and what it means for your project.

API Credentials

API stands for "Application Programming Interface". Put simply, it's a way for two programs to interact with each other. This kind of interaction is a powerful tool, which is why in many cases API access is restricted; in order to bypass these restrictions, we'll need the credentials for your API. 

If this sounds intimidating to you, don't worry! Modern Retail will handle this part of your project entirely by ourselves. We'll get in touch with Tri-Tech directly, and retrieve your API credentials from them. If you have additional questions about this step, or other parts of your project, feel free to get in touch with your Modern Retail project manager.
