Essential authentication info
What basics are needed to authenticate and connect an application with a paramate configurator?
At first please note, that normally all users have a free license that may be used for testing and developing and for non-commercial applications. This license is used for the default sandbox application that is registered automatically when setting up a new configurator in the paramate configurator admin. For learning how setting up a configurator in the paramate admin works, please read our Getting Started Tutorial.
For a registered app the API Key and Configurator ID can be seen when clicking on the info button (the little "i" icon) in the section "Registered Applications for this Configurator" at the bottom of the configurator setup page for your configurator in the paramate admin.
A new registration for an app can be added by clicking the button "Add Registration". In the popup that is triggered only the license needs to be selected and a name has to be filled in. The other settings are optional and do not have to be set. They can be used to add additional layers of security, like disallowing downloading of the mesh model to the web client.
