Legacy POST/GET API
The majority of the API (application programming interface) scripts in Ubersmith require validation in
order to make sure that the information they are receiving is from a
legitimate source. This validation is checked by using two variables
that should be passed to each API script along with whatever specific data
is being used.
The two variables are as follows:
This is the login name for a user who has been given API access.api_pass
This is the password of the user specified by api_login
api_login must be a legitimate user that has been added to the
system via the user management page in the setup & admin section.
To give a particular user API access, simply check the box labeled 'API
access' on the add/edit user popup window.
Note: It is a good idea to
create a kind of 'dummy' user who has access to the API but not to any
other part of the system. That way if someone were to get a hold of
the API user's login and password, they would not be able to get access
to the more sensitive data by logging into Ubersmith.
