Keys

18 Jun 2014

The Keys page on the Cloud Dashboard lists all the keys and shows their current status. Keys can be created, updated, expired or deleted from the Keys page. Use the Download button to download the key file that is used by LabVIEW to authenticate with the Cloud Dashboard API.

The Key file contains three values that define the owner, the device name and the API URL. The owner is encoded in the apiKey field. The device name can be any globally unique string. The baseUrl is the URL address of the Cloud Dashboard API.
