Introduction to application credentials

Application Credentials (app credentials) is required when an application requires interaction with APIs of other service in MindSphere. This ensures secured interaction with the APIs. This is also useful when an application needs to perform frequent data processing on one or more IoT Value Plan tenants.

During the development phase, the developer should issue app credentials based on application version. This credentials should be provided as environment variables to the application. After the operator installs the application, credentials will be created for that application.

The following functionalities are supported:

  • App credentials are autogenerated

  • App credentials are valid for 365 days

  • Management and storage of credentials are secured

  • Only authorized users can request for credentials
