How do I manage developer keys for a Canvas Studio site as an admin?

As a Studio admin, you can manage and create developer keys for your Canvas Studio account. A developer key is a code given to the developer of a third-party application that allows access to certain information and permissions within Studio. Developer keys can be used to create custom integrations with Studio and allow third-party apps to use Studio authentication. The developer key uses OAuth2 to enable the application to use Studio for authentication. For more information about OAuth2, see the Studio Public API documentation.
