An Application Programming Interface (API) is a way for other software, like a mobile app for example, to connect with Enlighten and access system performance data. By default, all systems in Enlighten allow API access to external applications.
Although enabled by default, an individual application must request access, and the system owner must grant access before that application can access system performance data. As a system owner, you can decide if you want external applications to access your system performance data by managing your API settings.
To view API settings for your system:
- Click the drop-down arrow next to Signed in as… and choose Settings.
- Scroll down to API Settings.
To enable or disable API access:
- Uncheck the Allow API access… checkbox to disable access, or check it to grant API access.
- Click Update System.
- Click Back to return to the MyEnlighten main page.
To view the applications that can access your system performance data, click Show applications that have API access.
To revoke access for an application, click Revoke access next to the application name, then click Update System.
