API users are added to Roles where the System Manager can control the access that an API user has.

For information including technical details to develop an API, click HERE

Top Menu >> Setup >> API 

From the Setup page (right side) click API. 

Click + Add an API User.

Select a Role for the user. 

Note: We recommend creating a new staff role for the API user and granting it only certain privileges.

Give the User a Name and then select Finish.

After the user is created an API key will be generated.
