REST API - How it works
As the Client you either have the ClientID and Secret generated for you by us, or you generate it yourself via SSO depending on which API you are using.
You send the request to SSO, where a short lived access token is provided. In many cases you will also request a long lived access token so you don't have to regenerate the API Username & password regularly.
When using the API, we look at your ClientID and Secret and your username and password, checking the credentials match up.
Then information is passed between the API and Endpoints, which can be GatorMail, GatorLeads, or GatorSurvey.
