What is the App key and Access key?

The App key and the access key are unique for each application which helps you to authenticate the SalesIQ code in your application. Each app can have one app key and three active access key. The app key is unique and common for all the version of your application.

App Key

The App key is unique to each app, which helps you to locate the application library. This key cannot be re-generated.

Access Key

This key is the token to access the SalesIQ SDK on your application. A unique access key can be associated with each version of the application.

Each application can have three active access keys. When you generate the fourth access key, then you will be prompted to delete an existing access key or the fourth key generated will replace the oldest access key for the application.

You can associate the access key in each version of your application. If you wish to release a new version, then you can create a new access key and associate with the application. The old version will also be accessible until you delete or disable the access key. These keys help you to prevent your chat widget from hackers and malfunctioning of the app.
