The secret works as a password for accessing our services suite and hence your data.
Using a bearer token authentication enables users and devices to access protected resources without sending their credentials or tokens as parameters. Instead, users and devices can set in the Authorization header of any Apstrata HTTP request a bearer token that will be computed based on the application authentication key, their unique identifier and their apstrata token.
Never reveal your authentication secret to a third party, an Apstrata database affiliate will never ask for your secret. In case you feel that your authentication secret has been compromised, you can generate a new one.
