Post Categories

Each post category has two fields, Category Id and Description. The Id is what is sent in the category field when calling the Send Feed Event endpoint. The description is displayed to the user on the app management page next to a toggle. The toggle allows the user to choose whether or not they want to receive feed events in that category from that app.

Technical Setup

Here you can set the Proxy URL and Proxy Secret for your app, to find out more about how these fields are used, please read Using the proxy endpoint.

Tokens

To use the API, you need to generate a token for your app.

You can have up to two tokens active at one time allowing you to generate a second token then migrate your app's code to using it.

To use a token, simply copy it from the text box and send it in any requests to the API as an Authorization header with the value Bearer <your token>.
