Dashboard API Security
Dashboard API Overview
The Tyk Dashboard API is a superset of the Tyk Gateway API, enabling (almost) all of the core features and adding many more. The Dashboard API is also more granular and supports Access Control on a multi-tenant, and user basis.
With the Dashboard API it is possible to set Read / Write / ReadWrite / Deny access to sections of the API on a client by client basis, and also segregate User / Token / API ownership by organisation.
It is encouraged to integrate with the Dashboard API in a Pro installation.
User API Roles
See the User API Roles section.
Dashboard API Access
The Dashboard API is secured using an
Authorization header that must be added to each request that is made. The Tyk Dashboard API Access Credentials
Authorization key can be found at the bottom of the Edit User section for a user.
