About this task
Veracode API customers can access APIs and plugins using the ID and key credentials. If you use single sign-on with SAML, you can use the ID and key credentials instead of having to use a separate Veracode Platform API user account to access the APIs.
To create the API ID and key credentials:
- Log in to the Veracode Platform.
- Go to the user account menu and select API Credentials.
- Click Generate API Credentials.
- Copy the ID and secret key to a secure place to use them when logging into plugins.
After you create API ID and key credentials, you can use these credentials to automatically sign in to Veracode APIs and plugins without using a separate API user account to be able to access the APIs.
