Once your institution has activated Eko Enterprise API features, the superadmin will see a link
on the left hand sidebar of the Eko dashboard called “Integrations.” This is where API access
keys are managed.
An Integration can be thought of as representing a single application that you wish to develop. For example, if you were planning on developing both an Android and an iOS application, you might want to distinguish between the two with separate sets of API keys rather than sharing them amongst different repositories.
To create a new Integration, you simply click the “New Integration” button at the upper right hand of the Integrations page. This will take you to a form with some fields to fill out.
Application Name should simply contain the name of your application.
Bundle or Package ID should be an identifier that is unique to your organization like an Apple Bundle ID or a Google Package. If you are developing a web application, then you should put a URL here instead. There are no hard formatting requirements on the value that you place into this field, but you cannot re-use these identifiers across multiple Integrations. They must be completely unique for each one.
Description is completely optional. If you’d like to add some notes to the Integration for internal housekeeping purposes, feel free to place them here.
Once you have filled out the two required fields, click “Create Enterprise Integration” to generate a new set of API keys.
This will take you back to the main Integrations management page where you will now see an
actual Integration displaying both the values that you entered in the previous steps and two
new fields called Key and Secret.
The Key is an identifier for this particular integration which does not need to be protected in
any particular way, but the Secret is used to sign requests to the Eko Enterprise API and it
should never be discoverable by anyone outside of your organization. If you place this Secret
Both the Key and the Secret need to be provided to the iOS SDK in order to sign requests.
They can be easily copied to the clipboard by simply clicking on them on the Integrations page. An updated version of the iOS SDK will soon be shared which enables this functionality.
