Clay uses OAuth 2.0 for authorization, an open standard used by API providers. OAuth 2.0 is a specification that allows third-party services to make requests on behalf of a user without accessing passwords and other sensitive information. If you are unfamiliar with OAuth 2.0, you can learn more about it here; official OAuth spec.
You can set up OAuth in a few simple steps:
Register your app
Get the access token (client id & secret)
We recommend using a library to take care of the essentials of OAuth. Get in touch to learn more about how we can integrate smart locks for your business.
With the acquisition of Clay by SALTO Systems, our journey continues under the name of SALTO KS (Keys as a Service) with a new website.
