The API distinguishes three levels of credentials. The access level defines the list of authorized API methods.
Compare access levels:
The recommended level. Gives access to all API methods needed to send content for translation, get cost quotations, obtain translation status and retrieve translated content. These methods are perfect for most integration scenarios, including developing CMS connectors. The login/password are assigned individually per Beebox project. When connecting to the API, you can exclusively interact with data from this project.
Similar to the standard level but widens the scope of available API methods. For example, allows creation and manipulation of Beebox jobs. You would only opt for this access level if you want to control internal workflows in the Beebox.
These are the credentials you use to login to the Beebox user interface. The credentials give complete and unrestricted access to all Beebox projects and all the data. Using these credentials you can do everything the Beebox user interface can do! In fact, the Beebox UI does all its operations with the Beebox API.
The different access levels are discussed in the following pages:
