How do I enable scoping for a developer key in an account?
If you have enabled advanced Developer Key functionality for your account, you can customize the access the key receives. Enforcing scopes allows you to control direct access and specific API endpoints for third-party tools associated with your institution.
By default, scope enforcement is disabled when creating a new developer key, which allows tokens to access all endpoints available to the authorizing user. However, scopes can be edited for a developer key at any time and update access tokens for the authorizing user appropriately.
- Advanced Developer Keys management options are currently an account opt-in feature. To enable this feature, learn how to manage feature options in the account features lesson.
- Managing Developer Keys is an account permission. If you cannot manage developer keys, this permission has not been enabled for your user role.
