SecurityTrax

Getting Started

Overview 

The SecurityTrax API is generally RESTful, following the json:api specifications, with a few variances. Use of the API requires a valid user account and integrator key.

Integrator Key 

You’ll need an integrator key to communicate with the APIs. If you don’t have one already assigned click here to request one. This case-sensitive key will be provided as the X-SecurityTrax-IntegratorKey in every request header.

You will be provided with an integrator key for our staging environment initially. Once you are ready to move to production, and your integration has been reviewed by SecurityTrax, you will be assigned a production key.

Environments 

We have two primary environments: staging and production. It is important to understand which environment you are working with as there are different resources for each one.

Staging 

The staging environment will be your sandbox as you learn to use our APIs. This environment will allow developers to interact with a test system to ensure their application is working as designed before moving to production. You will have full access to the APIs and freedom to experiment as you write your app.

When you are assigned your staging integrator key you will be provided with credentials to the Sandbox Company test system. The Sandbox Company is the only company available in the staging environment.

Note: The sandbox site is a shared environment. Please to not use this environment for sensitive information.

Production 

Our production environment is where live company data resides. In order to use your tools against production you will need to know company specific information. The company you are working with will need to provide this information to you.

  • Profile Name. Each company working with SecurityTrax will have a unique profile name. This is the key that identifies the company and it can be found at the end of the URL the company uses to access SecurityTrax. For example: https://app.securitytrax.com/sandbox. In this case sandbox is the company profile name. Simply ask the company the URL they use to access SecurityTrax to get their assigned profile name.
  • Credentials. Each company creates and manages all user accounts in their systems. This includes the credentials needed to access the application as well as the permissions that grant access to the different resources within SecurityTrax. You will need to work with the company in order to get your user account details. SecurityTrax cannot edit user accounts or permissions in company systems.
