API Username and password
Question asked by Glen Harvy - July 15 at 5:04 PM

I can't find anywhere where you set a username/password for accessing the API. Am I to assume that any user in the role of Administrator can access the api calls.

The API username and password must be a user's username and password with the role of administrator. This gives you the control of setting what you want the username and password to be. A good practice is to have a dedicated User that is only used for the API calls.

Thank you.
Perhaps you should include this in your documentation somewhere.

I sitll can't get access to the API. I keep getting:

The soap request is:

@"<soap12:Envelope xmlns:xsi=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance""; xmlns:xsd=""http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema""; xmlns:soap12=""http://www.w3.org/2003/05/soap-envelope""><soap12:Body><GetArticle xmlns=""http://www.smartertools.com/SmarterTrack/Services2/svcKB""><authUserName>*******</authUserName><authPassword>*********</authPassword><articleId>43</articleId></GetArticle></soap12:Body></soap12:Envelope>";

The articleID is a guess as I don't yet know how to get it?
