What is an API key?
An API key is a unique signature that let's Lime Go know that the calling program is authorized to access your data. Lime Go's API keys are in the form of GUIDs (Globally Unique Identifiers) because they need to be unique for your organization.
Check out how to get your own API key here.
You can have as many API keys as you want. Create a new key for each service or use the same key for everything - the choice is yours. All API keys are however not the same.
API keys are not created equal
The API keys that you can create yourself, can be used freely to connect Lime Go to any service you want. These come with some limitations however. The data you receive when using these will not contain full contact information, but a limited subset.
When using the normal API key, Lime Go will expose company names, registration numbers, Bisnode Ids and all of the tags and custom field values.
Lime Go will not expose the company addresses, email or phone numbers.
When it comes to person data, Lime Go will expose names, e-mail addresses and all the tags and custom field values, but not phone numbers.
API keys with superpowers
Lime Go does however also have full access API keys the are allowed to expose full contact information, if the receiving program is an ERP system. If you want to get a hold of a full access API key, give us a call.
