Overview of Application Credentials

If a user's application requires interaction or calls to APIs of other services in MindSphere, generation of application credential for the application is a necessity. This provides a security in interacting with other APIs as well.

The issuing of application credential is not mandatory but is required to issue one when access is needed to other services.

After application credentials are issued to application, user has to invoke the Key Manager and create a bearer token. For more information, refer Token Manager Service.
