To foster the automation of workflows and processes with other systems, Probely provides API Keys for authentication purposes in the integration with third-party systems (e.g., Slack, Jira, Azure Boards, Azure DevOps, or Jenkins), as well as the integration of your own applications with Probely using the Probely API.
Generating an API Key has two steps:
Access the API Key configuration.
Configure, generate and save the API Key.
This article describes these steps in detail.
Step 1: Access the API Key configuration
Start by accessing the API Key configuration as follows:
Go to the Probely app.
Go to the dropdown menu at the top-right corner and click on API Keys.
Click on the ADD API KEY button to open the configuration form.
Step 2: Configure, generate, and save the API Key
In the configuration form, fill out the following fields:
Name - Type a meaningful name for the API Key. For example, “Azure DevOps Integration” or "My App Integration with Probely"
Role / Scope - Choose the roles that can use the API Key and at which level (scope). For example, “Admin” / “Global (account)”.
Click on the plus ("+") button to add the pairs of roles and scopes.
(Optional) Labels - Tag the API key with meaningful labels for filtering purposes.
Click on GENERATE KEY and copy and save the API Key.
