Step 3: Creating the Integration Record - the application for Token Based Authentication – this is how you will retrieve the Consumer Key and Consumer Secret
Very Important! At the end of this step, you must save the values for Consumer Key and Consumer Secret. You will not be able to retrieve them once you leave the confirmation screen. If you do not save these values, you will need to repeat Step 3 again.
Before connecting with a token, an integration record is required for authentication. A new integration record should be used and can be created by navigating to Setup > Integrations > Manage Integrations > New.
The name field should be filled in along with ensuring that the ‘TOKEN-BASED AUTHENTICATION (TBA)’ checkbox is checked. You can uncheck 'USER CREDENTIALS' if you want users to authenticate only using tokens. You may name the integration whatever you wish, such as "Volopay Integration" or "Volopay App".
Upon saving you will be given a Consumer Key / Consumer Secret.
Note: Save these values for Consumer Key and Consumer Secret. You will not be able to retrieve them once you leave this screen. If you do not save these values, you will need to repeat Step 3 again.
Step 4: Creating the Token
Very Important! At the end of this step, you must save the values for Token ID and Token Secret. You will not be able to retrieve them once you leave the confirmation screen. If you do not save these values, you will need to repeat Step 4 again.
Under Setup > Manage > Access Tokens > New, you can create an Access Token
Enter Integration name
Enter the above role
Click on Save
Note: Save these values for Token ID and Token Secret. You will not be able to retrieve them once you leave this screen. If you do not save these values, you will need to repeat Step 4 again.
